Event description

Description

The NAGPS will be hosting its Spring Advocacy Summit & Legislative Action Days from March 9-12. Here you can find the tentative schedule for the Summit, and here you can register to attend. The Westin Arlington Gateway is offering reduced group rate ​until February 22 at 5 pm EST for $155 per night! To make reservations please call: (703) 717-6200.

** When making reservations, make sure you identify yourself as an attendee of the National Association of Graduate-Professional Students event to receive the rate listed above**

We’ve fought off proposed tax hikes to graduate students and the elimination of student loan interest-deductions. We now face policies stripping protections under Title IX​, limiting the duration of international student visas , and the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act. In times like these, we want you to know that the NAGPS is fighting for you. We invite you to take part in our Spring Advocacy Summit/Legislative Action Days in Washington to advocate on behalf of graduate students at your institutions.

The Advocacy Summit is designed to prepare attendees to meet with their representatives on Capitol Hill. The two days of the Advocacy Summit will include informational sessions on policy ​initiatives, and best practices for conducting meetings with policymakers on issues in higher education policy. This year's event will focus on Title IX, higher education funding, HEA, international student issues, open access, science policy, mental health and unionization.

Graduate and professional students have a profound impact on the US economy. You contribute to bodies of research, teach classes, work in the field, research cures for diseases, and contribute to advancements in technology. Graduate students go on to become scientists, teachers, professors, public servants, social workers, healthcare providers, provide care for mental health, drug rehabilitation services, criminal justice, and business professionals.The contributions to society people with graduate degrees make is immense. People with these degrees are vital to providing the care, education, and services needed for future generations to prosper.

Registration is $100 for members, and $150 for non-members. This includes registration, a buffet breakfast, morning and afternoon coffee/food breaks, and a welcome reception on Friday.


If you have any questions, email Kaylynne Glover at legislative@nagps.org. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
