UC graduate deans to hold panel discussion Oct. 10

The Office of Research and Graduate Studies (ORGS) invites you to a panel discussion entitled The Critical Role of Graduate Studies in UC Research and Education, on Monday, Oct. 10, 3 to 4 p.m., in Franklin Lobby One Conference Room.

Five of UC’s graduate division deans will participate in the panel. Graduate deans from other campuses, including UC Davis Dean of Graduate Studies Jeffrey Gibeling (shown with other graduate deans and students at last May’s Advocacy Day in Sacramento) will also be in attendance.

Hosted by Steven Beckwith, vice president for Research and Graduate Studies, the panel offers a unique opportunity for meaningful discussion between UC graduate division deans and the UCOP community. Come find out what keeps the deans up at night and what makes them smile with pride about UC’s top-ranked graduate programs.

Panelists include:

  • Kim Barrett, UC San Diego, Dean of Graduate Studies
  • Joseph Childers, UC Riverside, Dean of the Graduate Division
  • Frances Leslie, UC Irvine, Dean of the Graduate Division
  • Tyrus Miller, UC Santa Cruz, Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies
  • Andrew Szeri, UC Berkeley, Dean of the Graduate Division

Graduate deans from other campuses will also be in attendance.
