Staff

The staff of the Graduate Division serve potential, current, and alumni graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. We work with many campus units to accomplish our mission of supporting graduate student and postdoctoral scholar success, during and after their time at UCSC.

During the COVID-19 campus shutdown, the best means of communicating with Division of Graduate Studies is via email. Connect with us on social media!
