Graduate Cabinet

The Graduate Cabinet, an informal body comprised of the graduate associate deans of the schools and colleges, the chairs of departments, directors of graduate programs and representatives of the Graduate School, convenes as needed in order to discuss important issues relevant to graduate education. Although the Graduate Cabinet has no bylaws or legislative authority, its discussions contribute greatly to the excellence of Binghamton University.
