Graduate schools across Missouri will celebrate Graduate Education Week in October. The statewide fall event conincides with the main graduate recruitment season.
Currently, graduate degree programs in Missouri are preparing more than 60,800 talented students for leadership in their fields. During Graduate Education Week, we recognize the hard work and societal contributions of graduate students, graduate faculty and graduate alumni across our state and nation.
Please explore this site to learn about how Missouri's graduate students are engaged in teaching, research, educational outreach and volunteer service.
Background: In 2006, 11 graduate deans jointly requested a governor's proclamation to establish the first Graduate Education Week in Missouri. By 2014, 24 public and private institutions joined forces in the unique public information campaign.
The goal then, as it is now, is to enhance public awareness about the impact and outcomes of graduate education.
