DGS Orientation Fall 2014 presentation.
University of Minnesota Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, Karen Hanson, invites thoughts and comments on a proposal to realign administrative support for post-baccalaureate education at the University based on a structure which groups programs into two communities: traditional research-based programs, and professional practice-based programs. The model is informed in part by the work of the Special Committee on Graduate Education (SCGE) in 2013.
In 2010, the University Senate Committee on Educational Policy (SCEP) charged a Graduate School Policy Review Committee to review and update existing graduate education policies that were previously found in a variety of formats, including the Graduate School catalog and constitution. The committee completed its work in spring 2012. Graduate education policies will continue to be developed and reviewed under the direction of the Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Education, in consultation with faculty, staff and student stakeholders. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or for more information.
