Primary office:

Anna Paradis has recently joined the School of Music as our Graduate Student Services Coordinator, but has worked as a graduate administrator at KU since 2008. Anna will work with prospective and current graduate students in collaboration with the Director of Graduate Study, Dr. Colin Roust. She is the main contact for graduate related inquiries in the School of Music, including Music Education and Music Therapy (MEMT). In her role, she will maintain the email account, manage the application process, student records management, and provides milestone and graduation resources.

Anna received her B.F.A. in printmaking from Boise State University and her M.A. in museum studies from KU, so she comes with a deep appreciation for the arts and music.
