From the great state of Texas:
- The Texas Chapter (TxGAP) will be hosting its first Texas Graduate School Fair on Tuesday, Nov. 14. This fair is for potential graduate students looking to attend graduate school in the State of Texas. All participating schools must be located and have a physical presence in the State of Texas.
- TxGAP recently produced a White Paper outlining Graduate and Professional School Fair best-practices. It included 45 recruiter participants from fairs at UT-Arlington, Texas State University, and UT-Rio Grande Valley. Results of the survey can be found here!
- TxGAP will be hosting its first pre-conference workshop at their annual Summer Institute (SI) in June 2018 in Corpus Christi. The pre-conference workshop will be presented by Direct Development and feature a hands-on workshop for inbound marketing strategies.
How many people do you know who don’t use text messaging? Maybe your grandparents? If you try to reach a potential student who is at work they probably won’t answer their phone or email, but they will at least look at your text message.
Thanks to all who participated in our recent "Needs Assessment," a survey designed to help the NAGAP Governing Board make critical decisions related to the Association's strategic plan in the months ahead. The response was overwhelming, and results will be used to focus energy and allocate resources that will impact the value to NAGAP members.
As promised, three lucky participants have been selected to win $50 Amazon gift cards, and should receive their prize in the mail shortly. In the midst of hectic lives, it's gratifying to note the level of impassioned commitment our members have for NAGAP. For this and other positive efforts, NAGAP continues to strive to create a body that remains true to its mission statement, rewards each member with the best offerings possible and continues to be the best association we can possibly be. We couldn't do it without you!

Inside Higher Ed
Feeling changes in the MBA market, the University of Wisconsin at Madison is considering changes to its MBA program that would "increase accessibility, flexibility" and be "responsive to the changing needs of students and employers." That was the message delivered in a vague statement posted by the School of Business Friday, and — as business schools across the country shake up their MBA programs — it leaves more questions than answers.
Diverse: Issues In Higher Education
Last August, graduate students at Columbia University successfully campaigned for unionization. In what is now known as "the Columbia Decision," the National Labor Relations Board, or NLRB, ruled that graduate students at private universities should be recognized as a workforce and thus be permitted to seek unionization and bargaining rights. While some expected a sudden and systemic shift towards unionization at the nation's other prominent institutions to follow, the transformation has been slow to materialize.
University World News
Many graduate level programs in science and engineering fields would be unavailable for American students without international students. It is therefore essential to have a welcoming policy for international students, concludes a new study by the National Foundation for American Policy. This includes upholding former President Barack Obama's extension of the duration of Optional Practical Training work visas for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students, which President Donald Trump intends to reverse, according to a recent leak of the president's draft executive orders to Vox News.
Both policymakers and educational organizations are increasingly investing resources in building out the STEM graduate to industry pathway. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announed this week a new initiative to double the number of CUNY graduates with tech-related bachelor's degrees by 2022 and with $20 million worth of investment, according to a press release from the mayor's office.
