February 18 & 19 – Graduate Education at Work in the World

This conference will focus on new approaches to graduate education in support of the public good, without losing sight of other key elements of higher education reform—including labor practices, student debt, efforts toward improving diversity and inclusion, shared governance, pedagogical training, and more. Participants will generate ideas, share best practices, consider difficult questions, and work toward new models for graduate education that support an array of creative, flexible career paths.

The first day will consist of an opening plenary, followed by a series of lightning talks. The second day will consist primarily of discussion sessions, followed by a social event. You can see the detailed program here and register for the conference here. Registration is free but required in order to receive Zoom information.
