Graduate programs advance human knowledge, educate emerging and continuing professionals, and resolve problems that positively impact society. Graduate faculty, staff, and graduate students bear a joint responsibility in accomplishing these goals. Just as graduate students should develop an understanding of and capacity for scholarship, independent judgment, academic rigor, and intellectual honesty, faculty and staff must work together to create an atmosphere that ensures freedom of inquiry, fosters mutual respect, and demonstrates professional integrity.
Good practice in graduate education centers on responsible interactions between graduate students and graduate faculty, supported by college, school, and department staff. In this section faculty and staff will find information on recruiting top students, program administration, advising, funding, and hiring graduate students.
