Growth and Development of Graduate School Functions in a College of Health Sciences
Dorsey, Lisa L.; Gockel-Blessing, Elizabeth; James, Rhys H.
Journal of Academic Administration in Higher Education, v11 n1 p31-37 Spr 2015
Saint Louis University decentralized Graduate School functions in the fall of 2010. The primary goal of this initiative was to provide greater "academic flexibility and resources" to expand graduate programs and enhance research opportunities in colleges, schools, and centers on campus. This initiative allowed the Doisy College of Health Sciences (DCHS) to create a flexible academic environment and allocate resources toward developing a graduate education team responsible for academic programs, research support, and academic affairs. The DCHS has realized the practical implications of the decentralized model through growth in academic programs, student scholarship opportunities, and graduate assistantships. This paper examines three intertwining key components before and after decentralization at the DCHS: personnel, university administrative structure, and operations.
