Welcome

Bridges to the Future
65th Annual WAGS Conference
March 26–29, 2023 | Portland, Oregon
Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront

The 65th annual conference of the Western Association of Graduate Schools will be dedicated to the Future of Graduate Education with presentations by futurists such as Bryan Alexander and Laura Nissen and multiple opportunities for engaging discussions with graduate school colleagues about the transformations our institutions would all need to undergo to be more future ready. On behalf of the entire WAGS Board 2022–2023, I invite you to join us in beautiful Portland, OR and enjoy two and a half days of rich conversations, great food, a Nautical Networking tour on the Willamette River, and more. We look forward to welcoming you!
