The Office of Graduate Studies provides assistance to graduate students and faculty to succeed in their programs of study, research and creative endeavors. Throughout the year, the Office of Graduate Studies sponsors workshops on career preparation, teaching and grant writing for both students and faculty and a year long Graduate Student Success brown bag lunch series. In addition we offer social events for graduate students such as Graduate Coffee and Graduate Game Night. We offer an annual Graduate Research & Creativity Symposium every spring to highlight the academic success of our students and faculty. The Office of Graduate Studies works with Graduate Council and the Graduate Student Advisory Committee to further academic and community endeavors for Graduate Students. Our office has an open door policy and welcomes graduate students, prospective students, parents and faculty to visit with any questions, concerns or suggestions. Please take a look at our strategic plan to see how our office is working on creating an excellent environment for graduate studies at RIT.
