Mission of the Office of the Graduate Dean
The office of the Graduate Dean is charged with the responsibility of monitoring, interpreting and worrying about graduate student affairs, the graduate student experience and graduate student policy matters on a campus-wide scale.
Our role is one of advocacy and commitment to maintaining and strengthening the quality and scope of existing masters and doctoral program offerings. Vital to this effort is our ability to attract the highest quality graduate students and to be able to offer financial support in the form of teaching and research assistantships and internships that will allow full-time devotion to study.
We must also be responsive to, and help define, new partnerships and programs with local and regional businesses and industry. This is accomplished by working with, through, and on behalf of, the different schools and programs.
Austin J. Cunningham
Dean of Graduate Studies
