The mission of this office is to define and support excellence through teaching, research, scholarship, and community service. Through what they learn here, graduate students are prepared to be leaders who will use, integrate and disseminate knowledge to transform society in ways that are consistent with the values, ethics and intellectual ideals of a Catholic Jesuit university. You will leave Saint Louis University not only with a degree but with a deeper appreciation of the impact your degree can have on your life and that of others.
The Office of Graduate Education is located within SLU's Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. The office coordinates university-wide graduate activities, and facilitates the development, improvement, and quality control of graduate education. Here, you will find links to workshops, funding and research opportunities, and campus activities that will enrich and enliven your graduate experience at SLU.
Each of SLU's schools, colleges, and centers has an associate dean or director of graduate education who is charged with overseeing the day-to-day operations of their respective graduate programs. The Graduate Education Web site provides links to the administrative offices connected to your program that can help you navigate the admission process or your progress toward earning your degree.
If you are a prospective student, I encourage you to explore the links on this site that will provide you with information about SLU's degree programs, faculty and admission process, as well as those that give you a broader view of the University.
Faculty and staff will find policy information, as well as forms needed to assist students in their progress toward earning their degrees and information related to the Graduate Academic Affairs Committee (GAAC).
Everyone associated with graduate education throughout the University is here to serve prospective and current students, alumni, faculty and staff. Do not hesitate to call on any of us. If we don't have the answer, we will find someone who does.
