Dr. Phil Cohen, our Dean and fearless leader here at the Office of Graduate Studies, is taking a one-year faculty development leave beginning Jan. 2013.  He will then return to the English department as full-time faculty.

We’ll miss you Dr. Cohen!

Dr. David Silva will serve as our interim dean (effective Jan. 2, 2013) until a replacement is named. This will be in addition to his current responsibilities as vice provost.

Welcome Dr. Silva!

(ATTN Grad Students!! Be sure to bombard Dr. Silva with crazy and complicated stories, travel money requests, questions, and small talk in the New Year to make him feel at home in the OGS.)
