The Graduate Community's Response to COVID-19: A Discussion with Graduate Deans

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges to graduate leaders. From the rapid implementation of online instruction to the delivery of student support in a time of social distancing, graduate deans and their staff are left with many questions about how to best serve their students and institutions. To provide support to our community, CGS President Suzanne Ortega convened an online panel discussion with experienced graduate deans on navigating the current crisis. Participants learned about what institutions are doing currently to respond to COVID-19, their strategies for overcoming false starts, and forecasts for institutional priorities in the fall and beyond.
