The Dean of Graduate Studies

Welcome to graduate studies at the University of Guelph! For those of you who are returning, welcome back. We in the Faculty of Graduate Studies take great pride in our graduate programs, which cover the full range of disciplines in the arts and humanities, social sciences, natural and physical sciences, agriculture, and veterinary science. We particularly value our longstanding collaboration with the Graduate Students' Association in the development of effective graduate policies and the delivery of high quality programs. If at any time in your program you need advice or help to solve a problem, please give either the GSA or Graduate Programs Services a call and we will do our best to help.

I wish you all the best with your studies, and hope you have a great year!
