Office of Graduate Studies

Dean's Message

As we welcome the fall season, a season that ushers in vibrant changes to our environment, I can’t help but think about the many changes we experience or influence when it comes to education.

The articles in this fall newsletter demonstrate the impact SAU graduate students have on the Quad Cities community, as well as how these Ambrosians are influenced by their experience of growing, learning, and CHANGING as students.

I imagine that when you opened this newsletter, you may have noticed a change in the newsletter heading: “Office of Graduate Studies.” I am excited to share that the Office of Graduate Studies is a newly created administrative unit supporting matters related to graduate education at St. Ambrose.

Have a happy and healthy fall season!
Regina Matheson, PhD

"The mission of graduate education at St. Ambrose University is to foster the growth of a community of learners who contribute to the advancement of knowledge and professional practices."
