The Division of Graduate Studies (typically just Grad Studies) is in charge of the education of all academic graduate students. They're somewhat akin to the Colleges for undergrads, but there's only one and they don't oversee the funding so much. What they do oversee is:

  • The creation and dissolution of Graduate Groups
  • awarding M.A., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees
  • sending out that GradLink email you never read
  • coordinating postdocs
  • and generally handling paperwork relating to all of the grad students

The current head is Dean Jeffery C. Gibeling.
