VERMILLION, S.D. – Ranjit Koodali, Ph.D., dean of the USD Graduate School, has been elected to the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) Board. Koodali’s appointment will run from June 2018 to June 2022.
The GRE Board is an independent board that sets policies related to the GRE program. The board assists the Educational Testing Service (ETS) in identifying and developing new testing products and services. The GRE Board also provides guidance to ensure that the assessment tests developed are fair and effective.
“It is a great honor to be elected to the GRE Board,” Koodali said. “The experiences in working collaboratively with fellow graduate deans and ETS and providing input to testing products developed by ETS will be invaluable. It will also be an opportunity for ETS to listen to and gain important perspectives from institutions such as USD and make possible changes. As a member of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusiveness (DEI) committee, I will have the opportunity to advocate on behalf of underrepresented minorities.”
