Student Services

The Student Services team at the Graduate School of Education and Human Development (GSEHD) strives to build a seamless student experience from the moment students decide to join the community through graduation. Support and advocacy are GSEHD's priorities as the team partners with students to enrich and accelerate academic, personal, and professional success.
