Assistant Vice Provost for Graduate Education
The Assistant Vice Provost for Graduate Education, AVPGE, provides central support for graduate students in a number of roles. These include: being an ombudsperson and resource person for graduate students as an informal advisor; resolving formal and informal graduate student appeals; informing and assisting in forming policy and procedures relevant to graduate students; and working with departments on issues related to graduate students and implementation of programs in support of graduate student development.
The Office of the AVPGE also coordinates several funding programs, and academically focused seminars and workshops that advise, empower and help retain all graduate students, particularly graduate students of color and women in the science and technical fields. The fundamental goals of our programs have been constant for more than 15 years: first, to support, advise and guide individual graduate students as they work to complete their degrees; second, to contribute to the greatest degree possible to the diversification of the academy.
Programs and support include:
Seminars and Workshops:
- Doctoral Career Paths Seminars
- Graduate Student Professional Development
- Graduate Women Gatherings
- Interuniversity Graduate Student of Color Series
- PhD Academic Job-Search Preparation Workshops
