COLA Staff Present at Graduate Studies Conferences

photoIt’s no secret that Graduate Coordinators were the driving force behind our first ever Dissertation Boot Camp. But Graduate Coordinators Marilyn Lehman, Kimberly Terry, Chaz Nailor, and Rolee Rios have also been on the front lines in getting the word out about this new initiative.

Thanks to our Graduate Coordinators for their ongoing support of graduate student success!
