Welcome to the Office of Graduate Studies and Research (GSR) at Stan State!

We are here to support you as you explore graduate programs and post-baccalaureate certificates, look for research opportunities (undergraduate or graduate) and complete your graduate degree or certificate. We are also the place to provide support to all faculty members who seek funding for scholarly work or would like to write successful grant proposals.

Our office has two primary roles. In Graduate Studies, we ensure that the University maintains high academic standards and provides high-quality graduate education by working collaboratively with all constituents in the development and improvement of graduate programs, and by coordinating events related to graduate student recruitment, outreach, and professional development.

Research and Sponsored Programs oversee the University research enterprise. We are responsible for providing the campus community with a full range of pre-award services that facilitate the development, preparation, and submission of grant and contract proposals for extramural funding; faculty professional development in research and grant writing; and assuring University compliance with federal and sponsor-specific requirements for grants, contracts, and general research activities.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to our office staff with questions or requests for assistance. We are here to help you succeed on your academic journey.
