CGS 60th Annual Meeting


    CGS values the health and safety of our members. Therefore, due to the ongoing health emergency of the COVID-19 pandemic, CGS has decided to cancel our in-person Annual Meeting scheduled to be held in Washington, DC, on December 2-5, 2020. Nevertheless, we remain committed to fostering idea exchange and learning on the important work of graduate education and will host the Annual Meeting virtually on December 2-4, 2020.


    The meeting format will include plenary sessions, concurrent breakouts, and a variety of networking opportunities. Topics will include both big picture discussions on the future of graduate education in a post-COVID world as well as practical and solution-oriented sessions to provide our members with new strategies and ideas to implement on their own campuses. Check back for updates on registration, schedule, and confirmed sessions.
