CDSI Graduate Advising

At the graduate level, students have the benefit of working more closely with faculty who serve as Program Coordinators. Therefore, our Program Coordinators and Graduate Advisors work together to advise students. Generally, course and curriculum questions should be directed to the appropriate Program Coordinator and application, policy, and procedure questions should be the directed to the appropriate Graduate Advisor.
