Young Americans continue to pursue careers in public service, although the hiring outlook for public sector employment is not as strong as other sectors. According to the 2012 CGS/GRE Graduate Enrollment and Degrees Survey, first-time graduate enrollment for “public administration and services” climbed 5 percent in 2012 and has increased 3.6 percent on average over the previous five years.
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.
