President Morehead noted the contributions of graduate students in his 2020 State of the University address, saying “Growing graduate education is another critical part of this strategic direction. Our graduate students bring fresh ideas, energy, and a drive to discover, and they provide critical support for the research, scholarship, and creative activities of our talented faculty. They also teach and mentor our undergraduate students. Growth in research, innovation, and entrepreneurship is simply not possible, at any meaningful scale, without growth in graduate education.” The State of the University was delivered on January 29 in the Chapel.
