Who's Who 

Graduate Advisor, Dr. Hina Azam

The Graduate Advisor offers students further information on fulfilling degree requirements, making adequate progress towards the degree, preparing for the thesis/report/comps/dissertation, academic integrity, among other issues. After your supervisor, the Graduate Advisor is the final departmental approver of petitions, exceptions, and other special requests. The Graduate Advisor is also the final departmental approver of coursework applied to the degree and graduation applications.


Graduate Coordinator, Kelly Houck

The Graduate Coordinator handles all administrative matters related to the graduate program. The Graduate Coordinator advises students and faculty on policies and procedures related to the graduate program. Unlike the Graduate Advisor, who is a member of the faculty, the Graduate Coordinator does not weigh in on academic matters or curriculum
