2019 CGC Summer Institute
Meeting Diverse Needs through Professional Connections
George Mason University, Arlington Campus
We are happy to announce the 2019 Consortium on Graduate Communication Summer Institute, where we will provide opportunities to discuss our growing professional field of Graduate Communication and share strategies for providing graduate communication support.
This year’s Institute, which meets just outside of Washington, DC in Arlington, VA, focuses on Meeting Diverse Needs through Professional Connections. As with the 2018 Summer Institute, we will accept proposals for works-in-progress presentations, short presentations on graduate communication pedagogical strategies, programmatic initiatives, and scholarship followed by rich discussion. We will also continue to accept proposals for graduate communication workshops, which will allow participants to share nuts-and-bolts approaches to written and oral communication support. Finally, we will be adding roundtable discussions to this year’s agenda, which will provide opportunities for less structured conversations about important topics.
See our Call for Proposals to learn more about works-in-progress presentations, workshops, and roundtable discussions.
