About the Council of Graduate Deans

The Council of Graduate Deans (COGD) is comprised of graduate division deans from each of the ten UC campuses. COGD serves to strategically influence graduate education at UC and beyond. The graduate deans work to address key issues impacting graduate studies at UC, such as student support and program competitiveness. They also work on behalf of advocacy for graduate education. CoGD efforts are supported by campus graduate division staff and UCOP staff. Dean Jean-Pierre Delplanque of UC Davis currently serves as COGD Chair.
