As I begin my Presidency of Bryn Mawr College, I'm excited about building on the College's historic strength in graduate education. At Bryn Mawr, we embrace a distinctive academic model that offers a select number of outstanding coeducational graduate programs in arts and sciences and social work in conjunction with an exceptional undergraduate college for women.
Our small liberal arts environment supports a collaborative, integrated approach to graduate education that can be tailored to the interests and needs of individual students while providing a comprehensive curriculum within their chosen fields of study. It offers many opportunities for students to work closely with faculty, other students, and professionals to advance their fields and prepare for productive and meaningful careers.
Recently we introduced a new administrative structure for graduate education at the College. A single Dean of Graduate Studies now oversees programs in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research. And in the fall of 2009, we welcomed Darlyne Bailey as our new Dean of the Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research who will work closely with the Dean of Graduate Studies.
