Message from Deputy Dean and Acting Dean Cole Crittenden

           Cole Crittenden headshot


“The staff in the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School are here to help you. While this academic year may be unusual in many ways, we will all still be fully engaged in our mission of supporting your learning, teaching, and research. 

Many of our graduate programs that were able to offer remote study in the fall will be able to continue to offer remote options for the spring semester for those students who require them. First-year graduate students who began their programs remotely have been contacted by staff from the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School with more information about their specific options. Graduate students in higher years of study may also be able to continue to study remotely in the spring, depending on the specific requirements of their programs and their funding support, if any. All graduate students should be in close contact with their programs over the next few weeks with any related questions about the spring semester."
