The Dean's Welcome

Welcome to The Graduate School

Interim Dean Sullivan

It is my pleasure to serve as the Interim Dean of The Graduate School at Augusta University and thank you for considering Augusta University for your graduate studies.

We have a vibrant and diverse graduate community that includes ~1000 students enrolled in 48 graduate programs across 10 colleges and schools.  Our students are being prepared for challenging and rewarding careers in allied health, the biomedical sciences, biostatistics, business, cyber security and intelligence, education, nursing, and oral biology.  In addition, we are always working to develop new programs to meet the evolving needs of our students and community.  As such, the Graduate School at Augusta University is preparing the next generation of leaders who will provide the discovery and innovation needed across disciplines to positively impact our society.

The opportunity to serve the needs of our graduate students and faculty in the current climate offers unique challenges and opportunities that I am excited to be a part of.  The health and safety of our students and faculty is a top priority as we work to develop new ways to maintain the high-quality education that we are known for while respecting the needs for social distancing.  I am extremely grateful of the hard work being done at every level of our institution to make this possible, and I am thankful to be part of an academic institution with such a strong commitment to protecting the health and safety of everyone.

The Augusta University values of collegiality, compassion, excellence, inclusivity, integrity, and leadership are all clearly reflected in the Graduate School. Not only do we provide excellence in post-graduate training and education, but we are pleased to partner with each of the individual programs to meet the specific needs of each student.  We further complement your education with numerous opportunities for professional development, leadership, outreach and service

Our strength is in our students and faculty and I welcome you to reach out to learn more about the opportunities available in the Graduate School at Augusta University.  We are committed to providing life-changing, life-saving education and I look forward to the opportunity to show you all that we offer.
