In the interest of maximizing opportunities for outreach and recruitment, and to better reflect its key role on campus, the UC San Diego Office of Graduate Studies has been renamed the Graduate Division. The Graduate Division serves as the central resource for all matters related to graduate education at UC San Diego. Led by Dean of the Graduate Division Kim E. Barrett, the division collaborates with faculty, staff and students to guide today’s scholars on their upward trajectory to becoming tomorrow’s leaders. The change of name for the Graduate Division underscores the importance of graduate education to the success of UC San Diego as a model public research university. The Graduate Division will play a critical role as the campus works to grow the graduate student population, as outlined in the chancellor’s strategic plan. The Graduate Division is currently rolling out a new brand and will have a refreshed website in the coming weeks.
