About Us

Graduate & Research Program Services is one of five administrative units that make up OVC Shared Administrative Services.  It is the hub for research related programs at OVC, serving graduate students, faculty and staff.  We work together with all departments in the college and with the University of Guelph's Office of Postdoctoral & Graduate Studies (OPGS) to deliver to you the information and services that you need to ensure a rewarding student experience.

We are set up to accommodate and administer all graduate programs at OVC.  Our team of Graduate Program Assistants (GPA’s) provide administrative support for specific departments and programs, and may assist with general inquires related to all graduate programs within the Ontario Veterinary College. We want to assure you that a Graduate Program Assistant will be available to assist each student and graduate coordinator on a daily basis.
