More than one-third of college students are people of color, yet nearly 80 percent of the nation’s college and university faculty members are white. An October 2013 feature story by Insight Into Diversity looks at several programs working to close the gap in higher education faculty diversity, including the CGS initiative, Preparing Future Faculty.
As the national advocate for graduate education, CGS serves as a resource for policymakers and others on issues concerning graduate education, research, and scholarship. Based in Washington, DC, the organization provides its members with regular updates and analyses of legislative and regulatory proposals and policies that affect graduate education.
