To fulfill the teaching and research goals of UMSL, the Graduate School provides leadership to graduate programs that inspire in students a passion for discoveries. Our programs reflect the campus's mission as a public metropolitan research university; that is, our faculty members and students’ scholarship advances understanding of their disciplines in rapidly changing local, regional, and global contexts.

In concert with the Graduate Council, the Graduate School:

  • Provides an environment in which students and faculty can work together to acquire, discover, preserve, synthesize, and transmit knowledge;
  • Continuously reviews the university's graduate programs and policies to maintain rigorous academic standards and respond to innovations in teaching and research;
  • Facilitates interdisciplinary communication and endeavors.
