Vision and Mission


Vision Statement

The vision of the College of Graduate Studies is to enable its graduate and professional academic programs to become nationally distinguished and highly ranked and to improve the human condition by preparing graduates for careers in the 21st century and fostering a culture of life-long learning.

Mission Statement

The mission of the College of Graduate Studies is to provide leadership for graduate education through exceptional support services for graduate students and faculty; to foster quality in graduate education, research and scholarship; to nurture the diversity and collegiality of graduate programs; and to work with Graduate Council to establish university graduate policies, standards and procedures that define best practices for the graduate programs it serves.


The College of Graduate Studies strives to recruit and retain a diverse graduate student population. COGS tracks student enrollment and, working with the academic colleges, plans to increase efforts to recruit qualified graduate students from underrepresented groups.

The College of Graduate Studies (COGS) participates in the University of Toledo Assessment process. The COGS Associate Dean for Academic Affairs serves as the liaison to the University Assessment Committee. COGS is considered a service unit and as such assesses service outcomes as opposed to program student learning outcomes. Annual assessment of the service outcomes will be used to inform changes in procedures, goals, objectives and service types when needed.
