The CGS Summer Workshop and New Deans Institute was held July 9-13, 2022 in Minneapolis. Meeting participants explored varied and important issues in graduate education. New and returning participants—graduate deans; associate and assistant deans; faculty and staff from colleges/universities; association, federal and state agency, and other education-related administrators; and others interested in graduate education—enjoyed a unique forum where they met leaders in their field and exchanged ideas and information.
