The Graduate Advisors are faculty members that act as the representatives of the Dean of the Graduate Division in approving programs of study for graduate students.
The Head Graduate Advisor will advise each new graduate student until a Guidance Committee is appointed. Current Head Graduate Advisor is professor Karsten Gronert.
All forms and petitions which are routed to the Graduate Division, including applications for advancement to candidacy, qualifying examinations, and petitions, must be initialed by the student’s Primary Instructor (P.I.) and signed by the Head Graduate Advisor.
