Graduate Student Summit

Graduate Student Summit


The UCEA Graduate Student Summit (GSS) is an annual pre-conference event organized by the UCEA Graduate Student Council. The UCEA GSS has grown each year as it has become recognized by UCEA faculty members and graduate students as a valuable developmental experience for aspiring educational leadership faculty.

UCEA Graduate Student Summit

The 13th annual UCEA Graduate Student Summit (GSS) will be held on Wednesday, November 20th, 2024 as an extension of the UCEA Convention at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites in Los Angeles, California from November 20-23, 2024. The GSS also offers opportunities for graduate students to grow their network by engaging with other graduate students and faculty from across the world. Specifically, the GSS includes paper presentations, roundtable discussions, and Ignite! sessions, in which graduate student participants will share their research and receive constructive feedback from distinguished faculty. For more information about each session type, see the call for 2024 GSS proposals.

The deadline to submit proposals has been extended to Friday, May 17 at 12:00 PM EDT.
