To The Top
Each year, the Office of Graduate Studies organizes a number of events for Directors of Graduate Studies and program contacts. Additional resources to support their work are also available on a Canvas organization.

DGS Orientation

Each fall, new DGSs and program contacts are invited to attend an orientation to assist them in their new roles.

This is also an opportunity to meet new faculty and staff, as well as representatives from the Office of Graduate Studies.

DGS Summit

All DGSs and contacts (new and returning) are invited to learn about current issues in graduate education and new resources available to them.

The DGS Summit is scheduled near the beginning of the fall semester. The summit is also a chance to collaborate across units and provide feedback to the Office of Graduate Studies.

DGS Network Meetings

DGS network meetings are scheduled throughout the academic year and are a continuation of networking and professional development specifically for DGSs and program contacts beyond the DGS summit.

If you have ideas or pertinent topics for DGS network meetings, contact Lissa Behm-Morawitz, Assistant Vice Provost for Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs.

DGS and Contacts Resource Account

The Office of Graduate Studies regularly communicates with DGSs and program contacts via email.

OGS hosts a resource account that it uses to share information critical to graduate students, including deadlines, events, resources, and policy changes. DGSs and contacts then share necessary information with graduate students in their departments and programs.
