Dean’s Circle

What is the College of Graduate Studies Dean’s Circle?


The Dean’s Circle is a community of alumni, faculty, staff and friends who, with annual leadership gifts, provide critical support that allows the College of Graduate Studies to seize opportunities as it strives toward its goal of excellence. All Circle members will be invited to an annual Circle event and will be recognized in the annual Donor Report. Additionally, members will receive invitations to other university events.

How does the Dean’s Circle make an impact?

The College of Graduate Studies continues to expand to benefit students, and has grown increasingly competitive on the national and international stages. To foster programs, scholarships, and research that shape the leaders of tomorrow, the College relies on the generosity of donors. Here are just a few of the ways your annual Dean’s Circle gift can make a difference for the College of Graduate Studies, its faculty and students:

  • Student scholarships
  • Student assistantships
  • Funding for students to collect research data
  • Funding for students to take part in academic professional development, presenting their research at national and regional conferences

Join us as we continue a tradition of excellence in the College of Graduate Studies at Tarleton State University.
