Welcome to the 66th Annual Conference of the Western Association of Graduate Schools!

It is with great pleasure that the Executive Board announces the 66th Annual Conference of the Western Association of Graduate Schools (WAGS), which will be held March 20–22, 2024. This year’s conference will be a virtual event, hosted by Northern Arizona University. We are developing an exciting and thought-provoking agenda to explore current topics and future trends which will benefit our outstanding graduate students. The 2024 conference will embrace the spirit of progress and the pursuit of excellence in graduate education.

Over the course of the 2 ½ day virtual conference, we will engage in dynamic discussions and inspiring presentations, and the conference will serve as a platform for connecting with colleagues, sharing of innovative approaches, and addressing issues that challenge graduate education in 2024 and beyond. We look forward to partnering with you on this intellectual journey, driven by the collective goal of advancing graduate education and fostering a brighter future for our wonderful students.
