The Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) established its Dean-in-Residence (DIR) Program in 1983. The program offers an opportunity for graduate deans, associate, or assistant deans to spend an academic year at the Council's Washington D.C. office. Each year one dean is selected from CGS member institutions to work with the CGS staff and participate in the ongoing work of the Council.
Application for the Dean-in-Residence position is made by submitting a letter of interest, including mention of a specific project or projects that the applicant is interested in pursuing, and a curriculum vitae to the Council’s president.
CGS provides a stipend to assist with relocation costs. Benefits are not included. CGS funding for this position is based on the assumption that the individual’s institution will provide additional support either through sabbatical or administrative leave.
Applications are accepted at all times, but to ensure the applicant’s institution adequate time to coordinate sabbatical and administrative leaves, CGS encourages early submission. Applications can be submitted one year in advance of the year in which the applicant seeks to serve in the DIR role. Applications from associate or assistant deans should be accompanied by letters of support from their deans.
Applications may be sent to:
Council of Graduate Schools
One Dupont Circle, NW, Suite 230
Washington, DC 20036
