Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs

The Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs is dedicated to creating a University-wide focus on graduate education and postdoctoral training by establishing good communication and working relationships with graduate schools, departments, graduate students, and postdocs. We collaborate on efforts to develop intellectually-stimulating environments for research, teaching, and service and to recruit, mentor, retain, and graduate a talented and diverse community of graduate students and postdocs. We believe a successful graduate experience relies on an ecosystem of support, including excellent faculty, competitive financial support, and opportunities for professional and career development.
