committed to supporting students and
ensuring a fear-free, inclusive space where all students
can thrive. The department recognizes non-binary gender
identifications, as well as the difference between assigned

**The department's review process for Fall semester formally begins January 1st. Applicants are strongly encouraged to have their application materials submitted by that time, if possible, as some of our faculty do extend assistantship offers earlier in the review process. Graduate Research Assistant offers are extended starting in early January, and continue on a rolling basis throughout the semester.  For best consideration, please apply by January.
