The staff members of the Graduate School are here to help students complete graduate degrees successfully. They are committed to being of service to students, and they can be of inestimable assistance in navigating a program of graduate study.
Nevertheless, students should always ask questions first of their degree program's administrative faculty and staff. Many of the Graduate School's general policies are carried out by discipline-specific implementation plans, and much of the paperwork that enables a student to proceed must come to the Graduate School from the faculty and staff of the program rather than from the student.
For a listing of the administrative staff of the Graduate School, please refer to the "Administrators" section of this page.
