Do you have a great story to share about the impact of master’s or doctoral education? Do you know a graduate student or alumnus whose work has the potential to cure a disease, alleviate poverty, or educate the public? The Council of Graduate Schools would like to hear from you. Our goal is to demonstrate that graduate education matters not only to degree holders, but also to the communities where they live and work.
