Dean’s Message

Vice Provost and Dean of the Graduate SchoolAs Dean of the Graduate School, my focus is on ensuring a high quality educational experience for our graduate and professional students. My highest priority is service to our students and academic units.

The launching of Vol Vision 2020 presents our campus with wonderful opportunities in graduate education. The strategic direction we have set for Vol Vision 2020 is:  “Strengthen graduate education through an emphasis on excellence and improvement of the graduate student experience.” Over the next five years, our campus will explore opportunities to improve our recruitment efforts, expand and improve the educational experiences and the services we provide to students, and explore areas for strategic investment. Truly, this is an exciting time to be the Dean of the Graduate School!
