The University of Chicago

Current Students

Dean’s welcome to New Students

All of us involved in research and education are thrilled to welcome you to the University of Chicago. You are our newest colleagues, who bring to our intellectual community your fresh ideas, your diverse backgrounds, and the excitement of your scientific curiosity. The graduate student body is a linchpin of our university mission – the mission to create and disseminate new knowledge - and that is exactly what each of you is going to do. I hope you find within these pages useful information about the Division, the University, Hyde Park and Chicago, to help you transition into your new home. On behalf of faculty, staff, your fellow students and the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs – welcome!
