The Graduate School: Meeting the Great and Small Challenges of Our Time


Lucas Cieza

2010 will mark the 100th anniversary of the Graduate School at The University of Texas at Austin.  We are proud of our world-wide reputation for excellence in graduate education and research, the discovery of new knowledge in countless fields, and our commitment to teaching and mentoring students.  As we move forward into our next hundred years, the Graduate School will build on its solid foundation and is eager to reach ever-higher.

Our new mission statement embodies our continued commitment to promoting the value and impact of graduate education at The University of Texas at Austin and throughout society.

The Graduate School at The University of Texas at Austin is an active community of diverse scholars in over 100 academic programs dedicated to excellence in original research, teaching, creative expression, and intellectual leadership.  Using our extensive resources and talents, we cultivate individuals who work together to bring knowledge, innovation, and best practices to meet the great and small challenges of time.

In the coming year, we will be launching new efforts in recruitment and outreach, fellowships, development, and student and faculty resources.  The introduction of publications such as the GradGuide (pdf) and The Toolkit for Success in Graduate School and Beyond, as well as a new web site filled with information for students, faculty, and staff is just the beginning.  We invite you to explore these resources and visit us often to see what else we have in store.

We look forward to  hearing from you and being part of your graduate experience at The University of Texas at Austin.
