Meeting Dates and Location

Out of an abundance of caution and in light of travel restrictions, the CSGS Executive Committee has decided to cancel the in-person CSGS Annual Meeting originally scheduled for February 2021.  Please mark your calendars for our abridged virtual conference February 24-26, 2021.  The conference will include some presentations, panel discussions, an awards ceremony, a virtual 3MT, and our business meeting. The next in-person CSGS Annual Meeting will be held Feb 17-20, 2022 at the Raleigh Marriott City Center. Please save the date!

The Conference of Southern Graduate Schools and the Council of Historically Black Graduate Schools are pleased to announce a new CSGS/CHGBS Forum Series
Once a month via Zoom, CSGS/CHGBS will host a lunch-time forum that focuses on a current challenge facing graduate schools and campuses across the region.  Members will have the opportunity to submit discussion questions, contribute to the conversation, or simply hear potential solutions being pursued on other campuses.  The first three forums are already scheduled and all center on the pressing topic facing all of us: “Managing (and Surviving) the Chaos of a Fall Re-opening.” Please join us!
