Welcome New Graduate Students!
As dean of The Graduate School of JMU, I want to personally welcome you to the JMU graduate student orientation web site! We hope this web site will be a great resource for you. The site was designed by and for graduate students and we think they did a great job anticipating your needs. Hopefully, all the questions you ever wanted to ask about graduate school are answered on this site - if not - please be sure to contact us.
James Madison University is a community committed to preparing students to be educated and enlightened citizens who lead productive and meaningful lives. You should know that our student-centered community values excellence, integrity and mutual respect and I am pleased you have chosen to join us for your graduate studies. Again, welcome aboard - and be sure to join us at our annual graduate student picnic each fall.Sincerely,
Dr. Reid Linn,
Dean of The Graduate School
