The Council


graduate council


The Dean’s Office Graduate Council is a group of student volunteers representing each of the fifteen graduate programs in the College of Natural Sciences. The Council was created in spring 2015 to enhance bidirectional communication between students and the Office of Graduate Education. Together, we are sharing ideas to optimize the graduate school experience for students throughout the College. All students are encouraged to communicate ideas, questions, and concerns to the Council member representing their program.

Please share your feedback with your graduate program's representative listed below.
