  • Where is the Office of the Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies?

    The Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Administration and Dean of Graduate Studies is located in 116 McMahon Hall on the campus of The Catholic University of America. To reach us by phone, call (202) 319-5247. Our fax number is (202) 319-6174, and our email address is cua-graduatestudies@cua.edu

    McMahon Hall itself is easy to find, centrally located between the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and the Edward J. Pryzbyla Student Center (see campus map).

    The Office itself is on the First Floor of McMahon Hall, and here's a hint. When you walk in the main doors, and you see the statue of Pope Leo XIII in the lobby, with his hand raised in blessing, turn the way he is "pointing" (that is, his right, but your left). The Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Administration and Dean of Graduate Studies will be on the right-hand side of that hallway.
