Fall 2011 - Summer 2012
To Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Fellows:
I am extremely pleased to welcome you to McGill University. With over 250 doctoral and master's degree programs, McGill is committed to providing world-class graduate education and postdoctoral training in a full range of academic disciplines and professions. Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (GPS) provides strategic leadership and works in collaboration with the Faculties and other administrative and academic units to deliver the very highest level of teaching and research across the University. GPS is responsible for the admission and registration of graduate students, disbursing graduate fellowships, supporting postdoctoral fellows, and facilitating the graduation process, including the examination of theses.
As a student-centred research institution, McGill places singular importance upon the quality of graduate education and postdoctoral training. As Associate Provost (Graduate Education), as well as Dean of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, I work closely with the central administration, Faculties, graduate students, professors, researchers, postdoctoral fellows, and staff to enhance the graduate and postdoctoral experience and provide a supportive, stimulating, and enriching academic environment.
McGill is ranked as one of Canada's most intensive research universities and among the world's top 25. We recognize that these successes come not only from our outstanding faculty members, but also from the quality of our graduate students and postdoctoral fellows - a community into which we are very happy to welcome you.
I invite you to join us in advancing this heritage of excellence at McGill.
