From the Dean
Jacqueline E. Huntoon
Dean of the Graduate School
Associate Provost for Graduate Education
2010 is the 60th anniversary of the formation of the Graduate School. This is not to say that graduate education only began in 1960. The first graduate students were actually on campus in 1889, only four years after Michigan Tech was established. The first MS degrees were awarded in 1927 and first earned doctorates were granted in 1934.
This year's annual report not only reviews what happened during the past year, but also provides some great highlights celebrating Michigan Tech's 125th anniversary. We are working hard with the support of not only faculty and staff, but also our tremendous alumni to continuously improve and grow the Graduate School in the upcoming years.
