The Office of Graduate and Professional Education works collaboratively with departments and programs across campus to support a dynamic and enriching educational environment leading to advanced degrees and certificates. While ensuring best practices in graduate education, our Office seeks to recruit, retain and support the professional development of a growing and increasingly diverse graduate student population. In addition to ensuring high standards, our Office actively seeks and secures funding to, among other things, enhance stipends, provide global travel grants for presenting and conducting research, sponsor workshops in grant writing, dissertation preparation and career counseling.
At the heart of graduate education is scholarship pursued in collaboration with faculty mentors and often other students, leading to the development of new knowledge. The rewards and challenges of these pursuits are numerous. Regardless, it is clear that the future of our state, nation and the world rests in quality of the new knowledge and the graduates that are the products of these activities.
I invite you to explore the links accessible from this page and I hope you will consider joining the more than 3500 graduate students pursuing degrees from among our 43 doctoral and 115 masters degree programs.
