There is so much we can offer you at GRU to enrich your journey and to ensure your eventual success. A collaborative and creative learning environment; state-of-the-art facilities; more than 120 forward-thinking programs in nine colleges and schools; the opportunity to participate in high-impact research, whether you’re an undergraduate or a graduate student; and a faculty of top scholars, scientists, clinicians, and artists, all committed to providing you with a world-class education, and a range of experiences and opportunities that rival the very best our nation has to offer.

I encourage you to take full advantage of the incredible opportunities in front of you and chart your own course to the future of your choice.
