Atmospheric Assessment Plan
Graduate education at Cornell is diverse, cross-disciplinary, and dynamic. While specific learning goals reside within the many academic programs, a set of overarching outcomes characterizes the graduate educational experience.
The maintenance of academic quality resides primarily with graduate field faculty and directors of graduate study, working through the Special Committee the group of faculty providing primary advisement and academic oversight for each graduate student.
