About Us

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.
