New and Improved: Community Voices Blog and Dean's Discussion Board

By Sarah Breyfogle

CGS is excited to announce that we have officially launched our blog, Community Voices, a collection of short-form insights on higher education for you, by you. Our former Visiting Scholar Jan Allen has kicked it off with a post called Re-Orientation to Graduate School about how some schools have added a re-orientation event to recognize students’ admission to candidacy and prepare them for research, writing, and degree completion. Watch for new posts here and in News Network. Have a great insight on graduate education? Submit your blog post ideas to us.

CGS is also happy to tell you that the Dean’s Discussion Board has been relaunched. This electronic forum provides a space where graduate deans and senior staff can exchange questions, ideas, and institutional practices. We heard from our members that they missed that the old Dean’s Discussion List would deliver posts to their email – this is now operational on the new Dean’s Discussion Board, alongside several quality of life improvements. We look forward to engaging discussions on the topics that matter to you the most.
