From admission to graduation, and all of the milestones in-between, our mission is to support and to promote the personal and academic development of all graduate students. Through administration of the graduate program, we work closely with faculty and staff within the various options to monitor academic progress, advise students with diverse needs, and administer a wide range of financial support for graduate students including emergency funds, conference travel grants, dependent health care reimbursements, and external and internal fellowships.
We encourage students to seek the support of the Graduate Office when needed, regardless of the issue. The Graduate Deans and Graduate Office Staff also work closely with the Graduate Student Council and the various Student Affairs offices.
The office is staffed by a faculty dean, Doug Rees; an associate dean, Kate McAnulty - who is also the accessibility coordinator; an assistant dean, Natalie Gilmore; a recruitment, outreach and admissions coordinator, Helen Duong; a financial analyst, Claudia Andrade; and an administrative assistant, Jacob Dalton.
