The Consortium on Graduate Communication is an international association whose members provide professional development in written, oral, and multimodal communication to students before and during their (post-)graduate academic and professional programs. CGC members work with graduate students in their first and second/additional languages.
CGC’s primary activities include face-to-face and online opportunities to discuss and share resources, pedagogy, research, curricula, and program models for graduate communication.
The Consortium was created in April, 2014, and its listserv and online membership survey quickly gathered over 500 members in at least 27 countries. On this website, you can find information about meetings, resources, and programs offering graduate communication support.
If you would like to host a CGC meeting at conference or other venue (perhaps outside North America!), please contact us. We are also interested in online communication, such as chats and webinars. As an entirely volunteer-run community, we welcome all expressions of interest.
Effective December, 2016, membership of CGC requires the payment of annual dues. Members receive a generous discount on CGC events, are eligible to vote in Board elections, and may stand for Board positions. Members are also supporting the graduate communication community. Please join now!
