The Office of Graduate Studies provides leadership and service to promote graduate studies and to provide research development support services to the university community. Special attention is given to interdisciplinary efforts that can contribute to leadership in a changing world. The Office of Graduate Studies offers funding opportunities, hosts New Graduate Student Orientation, oversees the thesis and dissertation submission process, and is home to the Graduate Resource Center.


The Office of Graduate Studies and the Graduate Resource Center have temporarily relocated to Library North 3022 for summer due to renovations on Level A. Unfortunately, study space for graduate students will not be available during this temporary relocation. Signage will direct you to us. We apologize for the inconvenience.
