Summary: Graduate School Annual Report 2007-2008

South Florida. We exhibited growth in graduate enrollments at both the masters and doctoral level,

graduate programs to enhance the delivery of the highest quality curriculum, while engaging faculty and
graduate students in a broad spectrum of scholarly activities. The reorganization of the Graduate School to
focus on Graduate Academic Affairs and Graduate Student Success in 2006 better serves the faculty and
students through communications, training workshops, and cohort building activities. The Deans and
staff of the Graduate School continue to work closely with the Graduate Council to assure that policies,
procedures, practices and curriculum align with our aspirations to become an AAU institution.

and promoting best practices in retention and degree productivity have all been key issues for graduate
education this year. The Graduate School continues to actively support the integration of
multidisciplinary graduate education with research through four thrust areas across the university:
Applied Life Sciences; Functional Multi-scale Materials by Design; Computation Tools for Discovery; and
Sustainable Healthy Communities. Forty-seven Graduate Multidisciplinary Scholars supported through
