    CGS Summer Workshop and New Deans Institute Final Program


    With over 260 meeting registrants, this year's summer meeting was an outstanding success! Meeting participants explored varied and important issues in graduate education. New and returning participants—graduate deans; associate and assistant deans; faculty and staff from colleges/universities; association, federal and state agency, and other education-related administrators; and others interested in graduate education—enjoyed a unique forum where they met leaders in their field and exchanged ideas and information.
