Graduate Advisors' Workshop

The graduate advisor addresses academic matters affecting graduate students and their academic programs. The role of a graduate advisor is distinct from that of the major professor, in having official authority through Graduate Studies.  In all programs, a graduate advisor’s signature is the only signature (other than the chair’s) that Graduate Studies recognizes as an official signature.

Each year, Graduate Studies hosts a workshop for new graduate advisors. At this workshop, Graduate Studies leadership provides the new advisors with information about campus-level graduate education responsibilities, academic milestones, mentoring, student professional development, and more.
