Announcing a Restructure of Rackham's Programming for Graduate Students

Rackham’s Office of Graduate Student Success has been integrated into the Dean’s Office under a new unit: Graduate Student Programs. The two new units and their titles reflect strategic program priorities as outlined by Dean Carol A. Fierke: 1) Professional and Academic Development and 2) Recruitment and Graduate Student Engagement. These teams represent Rackham's commitment to provide programs to recruit and support a thriving, diverse, and inclusive graduate student community.
