In keeping with the University’s purpose of engaging in the exploration of innovative ideas through research and teaching, new programs, and educational experiments, graduate programs at the University are committed to search for truth, transmit knowledge, encourage creative research and serve society. The University has a special commitment to these three functions: teaching, research, and public service, all of which are focused strongly on the attainment of a society – American and global – which is responsive to the human needs of all its citizens. This commitment is reflected in a twofold obligation of the University therefore to identify, to nourish, and sometimes modify that which among its traditions is or can be meaningful in the world of today and tomorrow while it discovers and develops the new, the perhaps as yet undreamed of, which a new age requires.


The mission of Graduate Education is to facilitate and support graduate programs and enable diverse learners to matriculate and graduate by collaborating with the various Schools to assist students in attaining mastery in knowledge, scholarly research, and creative skills critical to advance in their academic and professional careers.


The vision of Graduate Education in collaboration with graduate academic programs, is to improve and enhance student recruitment, admission, retention, and graduation by providing educational services and support to develop graduates who will serve society and be recognized for excellence in global engagement and intellectual contributions.
