For more than a year, ASR and the Graduate School have been working together on the redesign of several administrative processes related to the graduate education transformation. At this point in the project, the future role of the Graduate School has become more clear: the Graduate School will continue to have oversight of post-baccalaureate education at the University; however, they will no longer be involved in day-to-day student services activities. Much of this work will be handled by the graduate programs with involvement at the collegiate level. The functions that are better served through a central office will be handled by ASR.
Over the next 8 months, a group of ASR and Graduate School staff will define the details of ASR's role in graduate education student services. These team members are:
John Vollum (project manager)
At the end of this project, Stacia Madsen, Amber Cellotti, Renae Faunce, and Genny Rosing will officially transfer from the Graduate School to ASR. The specifics of the role they and ASR will play in graduate education will become more clear in the coming months, but what is certain to remain is the commitment to continuing to support an exceptional student experience as they have done in the Graduate School.
