The University of Arkansas recently opened a new office devoted to helping graduates find new avenues of financial assistance and support, as well as providing graduate faculty with more enrichment opportunities.

The Office of Graduate Fellowships and Student Success, formed by the Graduate School and International Education, also will administer doctoral fellowships. The office will be run by Vicky Hartwell, the former director of domestic graduate recruitment.

Under the restructuring, the international and domestic recruitment offices will become one overseen by Lynn Mosesso, director of Graduate and International Recruitment and Admissions. The staff will continue focusing on attracting a diverse student population and high-ability grad students.

Kim Needy, dean of the Graduate School and International Education, shared her thoughts on the new office.

"I am excited by the creation of the Office of Graduate Fellowships and Student Success, and I believe the resources and support this new office will provide will play an important role in strengthening graduate education on our campus by helping our graduate students become even more successful," Needy said.
