Directors of Graduate Studies

Main content start

The Director of Graduate Studies (DGS) in the student’s degree-granting department is a faculty resource in addition to their faculty advisor and thesis committee members. DGSes serve as primary liaisons between graduate students, faculty in their programs, the Department Chair, the School, and the University.

CEE has two faculty who serve as co-directors of graduate studies. You can talk to either Director - we purposefully chose faculty from different topic areas in case you feel more comfortable talking to one outside your program.
