The School of Graduate Studies and Research (SGSR) is one of the twelve major academic units of the University. The school has the principal responsibility of working in collaboration with the various schools, colleges and institutes to maintain, develop, coordinate, and monitor the policies and procedures that govern all graduate programs.
The Division of Graduate Studies was established in 1957 and was elevated to the School of Graduate Studies, Research and Continuing Education in 1987. Currently known as the School of Graduate Studies and Research, high priority is given to the development of sponsored research and the research interests of individual faculty members. Service provided to aid the development of research and other grant proposals includes technical assistance, dissemination of requests for proposals, and editorial consultation. In certain instances, grant proposals are developed and written by the School. Contact is maintained with private corporations and foundations, as well as local, state, and national governmental agencies in pursuit of support for its research programs.
Graduate study is available in nine schools and colleges and two institutes. Collectively, these entities offer 12 Doctoral degrees and 39 master’s degree programs.
