The Faculty provides leadership and support for excellence in graduate education and research to about 6,000 graduate students in 54 programs. An important responsibility is to ensure that graduate degrees granted by the University of Calgary meet high national and international standards. The Faculty works to ensure that the best students are recruited and admitted to the University of Calgary by, for example, setting admission and program standards, and through the administration of about $20 million annually in financial awards for graduate study. It also promotes uniform standards of excellence across programs through establishing degree requirements, granting supervisory privileges and approving examiners.
