Urban Education Policy

Graduate education is a responsibility of the best universities, to prepare faculty, scholars, and researchers to assume positions of leadership in a wide range of academic and professional fields. Graduate students work with faculty in the production of new knowledge at the forefront of the disciplines and they ensure that undergraduates are integrated into those endeavors. Accordingly, enhancing our graduate programs and our ability to attract the best students to those programs is a critically important goal.
