About the Roundtable
Graduate education in the United States plays a critical role in the success of the U.S. workforce and economy. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that occupations requiring at least a master’s degree for entry will grow at a much faster rate than occupations that call for less education. To ensure graduate schools continue to respond to rapidly changing workforce demands, strong connections between graduate schools and employers are more important than ever.
To strengthen these connections, CGS has formed a small group of senior leaders representing employers of graduate degree holders in various fields and organizations serving higher education. The Employer Roundtable advises the CGS President on workforce issues and is the leading voice on graduate student workforce preparedness.
