Meeting Highlights

The 2024 Summer Workshop program promises to be both informative and engaging, featuring a range of timely topics and practical guidance for both new and experienced deans. Plenary sessions will delve into crucial issues facing graduate education today including: AI in graduate education, creating community and scientific exchange to shape practices for a healthier ocean and understanding how to chart a path on campus that complies with current legislation around DEI programs.  Additionally, the meeting will offer sessions on timely topics such as graduate student mental health, mentoring and fundraising. Attendees will have the opportunity to network in sessions and attend an optional reception at the Old South Meeting House, the location of the historic Boston Tea Party.
