Administrative Structure

The School of Graduate Studies is constituted to administer the policies of the Senate of Queen's University as they pertain to graduate studies. The School embraces all the departments, programs and interdisciplinary schools that offer graduate programs except for those graduate level programs administered by the School of Business.

Graduate departments and/or programs are grouped according to faculty-based Graduate Councils or Committees that govern the academic programs of the graduate students in the related departments.

The governing body of the School is the Graduate Studies Executive Council (GSEC) of the School. GSEC ensures that the Faculty Graduate Councils/Committees establish and follow appropriate procedures to carry out their responsibilities associated with graduate programs within the Faculty/School. Decisions made by GSEC are either recommended or provided as information to Senate and Senate subcommittees as required by SGS or university regulations, and to the Faculty Graduate Councils/Committees.

The Office of the School of Graduate Studies is responsible for the implementation of GSEC's policies and the coordination of the admission and degree programs with the departments/programs. The Vice-Provost and Dean, School of Graduate Studies is the chief executive officer of the School and is responsible to the University Provost.
