Graduate Student Advisors

Professor Meredith Hastings and Lisa Sheehan manage the Graduate Admissions and Awards process for the Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences Department. Both Meredith and Lisa work closely with the Graduate School (where every application is initially processed) to ensure information is disseminated to department faculty, and decisions are made in a timely manner. Once graduate students are selected, the decisions are sent back to the Graduate School, where all final correspondence is processed.

Also acting as the Director of Graduate Studies, Professor Meredith Hastings is the point person for all graduate students once they begin their studies with Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences. Meredith presents an orientation session for all incoming grad students, approves or co-approves all paperwork involved with course registration, changes, drops/adds, preliminary and thesis defense meetings, and provides general council and advise above and beyond each students' regular research advisor.
