Graduate Education Strategy Group


As the state’s flagship institution, and a major research institution with national and international relevance, it is vital that we give thought to our standing, aspirations, and strategic agenda in graduate education. As such, the Graduate Education Strategy Group was convened in 2017 to ask for feedback from faculty across campus regarding the strengths of the Graduate School, areas for improvement, and strategic direction.
