The 2017 Summit theme, “Graduate Education 2030: Imagining the Future,” revisits an earlier CGS project, Graduate Education 2020, which challenged leading scholars to consider technological, demographic, and global trends shaping graduate education around the world, and to use the best evidence available to predict what the future of graduate education might look like. Now that the year 2020 is within sight, we take this opportunity to reconsider the future these scholars imagined. Looking even farther ahead, to 2030, we invite international leaders in graduate education to describe the global forces transforming graduate education in their countries and regions: How does the nature of graduate education in 2030 differ from what is available in 2017?
The 2017 Global Summit on Graduate Education will attempt to create a vision of the potential future(s) of graduate education, and how individually and collectively we might help influence these forces for the benefit of students, universities, and broader communities.
The 2017 Summit is generously sponsored by the Educational Testing Service (ETS).
