The Consortium on Graduate Communication invites you to the 2016 CGC Summer Institute: Bridging English Language Teaching and Writing Studies in Supporting All Graduate Writers,” taking place from Thursday June 9th to Saturday June 11th, 2016 at Yale University in New Haven, CT.

In this 2-and-a-half-day retreat for graduate communication specialists, we will hear from experts in the field, share ideas and experiences, and work in groups to develop programs, courses, and research agendas. Building on our successful 2015 colloquium in Toronto, the CGC Summer Institute is an opportunity for us to roll up our sleeves and pursue our goals of supporting graduate communication skills. Participants are encouraged to attend the Institute to develop a specific project in program, course, or research design for their local contexts. Keynotes, discussions, and working groups will provide ideas and opportunities for collaboration and writing.
