Graduate students have been reaching their academic goals at A-State for over 60 years. We work together with our students to help enrich their lives locally, nationally, as well as globally.

Graduate students are an integral part of our research, teaching, and service mission at A-State. Our diverse community of faculty and graduate students makes significant contributions and serves as the backbone of the university's academic and research enterprise.

This inclusive, collaborative plan engages the Graduate School’s key stakeholders to discover and define how we leverage our opportunities and tackle our challenges for the next five years.
