Thank you #2

Date: March 2017


Hi Deans,

I have enjoyed reading the ask a Dean section of the graduate school announcements. I find the responses would have been very useful in my first semester at Cornell when I was still figuring everything out (ie information on workers comp and healthcare.) Also, your responses regarding the union are helpful.

Dear Appreciative Graduate Student,

Thank you for your comment to Ask a Dean. 

It’s useful to know that the Ask a Dean column in Graduate Announcements is helpful to you … and would have been more helpful even earlier in your program here. Ask a Dean is in a trial period for this academic year; based on use and feedback so far, we likely will continue this feature for the foreseeable future. 

We’ve also received positive feedback so far on our new trial item, Tips and Takeaways, so will likely continue that column as well. Thanks for your feedback and let us know if you have other suggestions. We are here to serve you, our graduate students, and support you in your academic and professional endeavors.

Warm regards,


Barbara A. Knuth
Senior Vice Provost and Dean of the Graduate School
