Advisory Council

A wide range of opinions, perspectives, and experiences are essential to excellence. The Division of Graduate Studies works collaboratively with campus units and student organizations to promote the recruitment, funding, academic success, and professional growth of graduate students from a variety of backgrounds, including those historically underrepresented within research universities.

The Division of Graduate Studies formed a two-tier structure of students and academic faculty who support and assess the progress of the initiatives that integrate anti-oppression measures into graduate education.

The Graduate Diversity Advisory Council seeks input from the campus community members on topics concerning equity and inclusion, such as graduate student experience and department climate.
