Portland 2017 CGC Colloquium


Are you attending CCCC, AAAL, and/or TESOL in March, 2017?

Join CGC for a conversation about graduate communication support:

The CGC 2017 Colloquium

at Portland State University

hosted by the Intensive English Language Program and the Office of Graduate Studies

March 18-19, 2017

Free with paid CGC membership ($20 non-members)*


The CGC Colloquium takes place right at the end of CCCC (Portland), in the middle of AAAL (also Portland), and just before TESOL (up the coast in Seattle). Add us to your travel plans, and join CGC to share ideas, resources, teaching techniques, and research for developing graduate students’ communication skills. Portland State University is conveniently located in downtown Portland, with easy access to other conference sites, hotels, and restaurants. At the CGC Colloquium, you will hear from experts in the field and discuss your questions about program design, curricula, and research with colleagues working in the field of graduate communication.
