Welcome from the Dean

Welcome to Graduate Studies and Research at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.  Our website is designed to provide information for students considering application to UNK and for those who are already in attendance.  I invite you to explore our website to learn more about the application process and our 37 accredited online and campus-based graduate programs.

Graduate education is an important investment in your future.  It is a time of exploration and immersion in a particular specialty.  The graduate departments and programs at UNK work with the Offices of Graduate Studies and Research to carefully select students who can be successful in graduate study.  As graduate students, you are my number one priority and I am committed to providing the environment and resources you need to succeed.  We are present to answer your questions and guide your progress.  UNK prides itself on being student centered.  We provide individualized attention to the needs of students, have respect for their unique circumstances and concerns, and appreciate their strengths and insights.

It is our role to make your time with us a rewarding experience and one that sends you on a trajectory toward a long and rewarding career.  If you need additional information, do not hesitate to contact us directly or visit our offices in Warner Hall.

With best wishes,

Kenya S. Taylor
