    Federal Agencies Issue Guidance Due to Coronavirus

    Many CGS member institutions are responding to events surrounding the recent Coronavirus outbreak, which may impact both international students coming to the U.S. as well as domestic students studying abroad. CGS members can find regularly updated information about the virus and travel precautions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of State. CGS members are also encouraged to engage in dialogue with other members on CGS’s Dean’s Discussion Board on this topic, where members can share what their campuses are doing to address challenges related to restricted travel and administering entrance exams, for example.


    CGS is the leading source of information, data analysis, and trends in graduate education. Our benchmarking data help member institutions to assess performance in key areas, make informed decisions, and develop plans that are suited to their goals.
    CGS Best Practice initiatives address common challenges in graduate education by supporting institutional innovations and sharing effective practices with the graduate community. Our programs have provided millions of dollars of support for improvement and innovation projects at member institutions.
    As the national voice for graduate education, CGS serves as a resource on issues regarding graduate education, research, and scholarship. CGS collaborates with other national stakeholders to advance the graduate education community in the policy and advocacy arenas.  
    CGS is an authority on global trends in graduate education and a leader in the international graduate community. Our resources and meetings on global issues help members internationalize their campuses, develop sustainable collaborations, and prepare their students for a global future.
