Mission Statement of the Graduate School

The Graduate School offers the administrative structure, leadership, and guidance necessary to support graduate education at the University. The staff of the Graduate School works with the Graduate Council, the academic deans, and the graduate departments and faculty to help provide students a superior educational environment within which to pursue graduate and professional degrees.

Graduate faculty members design and maintain intellectually rigorous programs that lead students to extend their knowledge, expand their capabilities, and develop critical thinking skills and expertise necessary to conduct original research. Graduate students work closely with faculty members who are committed to advancing the state of knowledge in their disciplines. Students and faculty are thus reciprocally engaged in intense learning, teaching, and research activities; the Graduate School supports and serves those so engaged.
