Mission Statement

the graduate school of the morrissey college of arts and sciences

The Graduate School of the Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences contributes to the University's mission by providing the resources for our faculty and students to excel at two integrated activities: the preparation of future professionals in teaching and research, and the development of new knowledge through research and scholarship.

To accomplish this the Graduate School collaborates with colleagues across campus to provide leadership in several key areas: recruitment and admissions; curricular design, implementation, and evaluation; student services and student life activities; career placement; and ongoing program evaluation and assessment. And through regional and national collaborations, the Graduate School assures innovation in program offerings and professional development for our students.

The Graduate School also serves as an advocate for graduate student concerns on campus.
