The communications team conveys the Graduate School’s commitment to diversity and graduate students’ success by supporting fundraising, recruitment and retention and professional development efforts.

Additional support

We direct, design, create and maintain our online presence that serves the Graduate School’s audiences. In addition, we gather, coordinate and disseminate information of interest and importance to UW graduate students, Graduate School staff, University leaders, the UW campus and the community, and collaborate with units campus-wide to share content and cross-promote news and successes. Communications vehicles include the Graduate School website, social media channels, regular enewsletters to grad students and staff, public presentations and institutional reporting.

Interdisciplinary Programs

The Graduate School provides advocacy, management, and an administrative home for integrative interdisciplinary programs.

David Canfield-Budde, assistant dean for academic affairs

Additional support

We partner with faculty across multiple colleges, schools, campuses, and partner institutions to support educational activities that cut across administrative boundaries and where the diversity of faculty interests and expertise cannot easily be represented by a single chair, dean, or chancellor.
