Review Report: School of Graduate Studies (May 2014)

Institutional support for excellence in graduate education and graduate student experience is central to the University of Toronto’s academic mission.

In September 2013, the Provost announced the membership of the Advisory Committee to recommend the appointment of a Dean of the School of Graduate Studies and conduct an internal review of the School (PDAD&C#20, 2013-14).

The Committee heard from students, faculty, staff, and divisional and central administrators involved in graduate education. The Review Report’s recommendations reflect the following consultation themes: Students, Academic Programs, Faculty, and Operations.

Earlier this spring, the Provost announced the appointment of Professor Locke Rowe as Dean, School of Graduate Studies and Vice-Provost, Graduate Research and Education (PDAD&C#55, 2013-14). His mandate is to develop a vision and implementation plan that respond to the Report’s recommendations.
