Our Mission

The Graduate School's role is to foster excellence in all dimensions of post baccalaureate studies and is the primary advocate for graduate education and for graduate students at the University.  Graduate education functions to explore and advance the limits of knowledge and define the state of the art in an academic discipline.  Our purpose is to serve society's needs in specific technical and professional ways as well as the need for intellectual expansion.  In accomplishing this mission, the Graduate School values integrity, collaboration, efficiency, innovation, and inclusiveness in all that it does.

Established in 1985 with the appointment of the first dean, the Graduate School offers nearly 100 graduate degree programs which include 21 doctoral programs, in a wide variety of fields and specialties ranging from architecture, biomedical engineering, computing, engineering, and health administration to history, teacher education, creative writing, business, nursing and social work.  Graduate students enrolled in the University come from nearly every state in the union.  International students come from a variety of countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, Central and South America.  The Graduate School has approximately 750 members of the Regular Graduate Faculty teaching and mentoring graduate students.
