Dean’s Graduate Student Advisory Board

The College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences (CEHHS) Dean’s Graduate Student Advisory Board is composed of graduate student representatives from each department in the college. These students were selected by their respective department heads to serve as liaisons between graduate students and our dean. The advisory board meets with the dean on a monthly basis.

In addition to advising the dean, the members of the Graduate Student Advisory Board are responsible for coordinating two annual events. The Graduate Student Research Panel, held once a year, is designed to answer students questions about conducting original research. The Graduate Student Research Colloquium, held each year in March, is a forum for graduate students to showcase their research through presentations or poster sessions.
