Annual Meeting

Annual Meeting of the Conference of Southern Graduate Schools

Critical Junctures in Graduate Education

February 17-19, 2022


Graduate education today faces uncertainties and pressures that continue to create instability and pose threats. In this moment of flux, the graduate education community has an opportunity to see critical junctures where bold change is possible—perhaps more possible now than during times of stability. Navigating these critical junctures, however, will require leaders and change agents who are ready to manage the uncertainties and pressures with collaboration, compassion, and creativity. CSGS recognizes that the city of Raleigh, in the heart of North Carolina’s Research Triangle—a place where academia, industry, and government collaborate and innovate everyday—offers an ideal setting for us to come together to confront the critical junctures in graduate education today. As we prepare for the return to an in-person annual meeting, the CSGS Executive Board and the 2022 Conference Program Committee invites you to review the (preliminary) program and register for the event. Please note, the program may be updated as the event draws closer.
