Each year, the Office of Graduate Studies releases an Annual Report of its activities involving all areas of graduate education at GVSU. The OGS is specifically responsible for administration of the graduate assistantship program, offering the PACES program, leading the Graduate Showcase, the graduate student orientations and celebrations, supporting the work of Graduate Council, supporting the Graduate Student Association, producing the Graduate Director’s Handbook and the Graduate Student Guidebook, administering the Presidential Research Grants program, reviewing graduate faculty applications and maintaining a graduate faculty database, and enforcing graduate education policies.
Major initiatives for 2013-14 included: continued redesign of graduate program websites, creation of an acceptance video for newly admitted students, creation of a graduate inquiry system for prospective students, and development of a Graduate Advising Best Practices Guidelines document for our current students and faculty. The OGS was also involved in several university wide initiatives and policy implementations designed to enhance the quality and capacity of graduate education at GVSU.
