Join us for the GADE Virtual Awards Ceremony

On behalf of the GADE Board of Directors, we invite you to the GADE Virtual Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, February 2, 2022, at 7:00pm ET / 6:00pm CT. Due to the recent surge in COVID-19 infections we were unable to host the GADE Reception at the SSWR Conference. To properly recognize this year's awardees we will be hosting a virtual event honoring the 2022 GADE Awardees and Cross-Institutional Student Collaboration Winner and recognizing the Anti-Racist Pedagogy doctoral student team. All are welcome!
