Save the Date: GADE Virtual Awards Ceremony

On behalf of the GADE Board of Directors, we invite you to the GADE Virtual Award Ceremony on 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. In order to properly recognize our community, we will be hosting a virtual event to honor the 2022 GADE Awardees and Cross-Institutional Student Collaboration Winner and recognize the Anti-Racist Pedagogy doctoral student team.

Update: GADE Reception at SSWR

We are writing to inform you that the GADE Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel our GADE Reception at the 2022 SSWR Conference. Due to the unprecedented rise in recent coronavirus infections, we feel it is prudent to honor our awardees at an online live awards ceremony to be held in the very near future (date TBA). In addition to this virtual event, we will plan to recognize this year’s awardees again at the 2023 SSWR Annual Conference. The Board did not come to this decision lightly. After careful deliberation, we concluded that the risks outweighed the benefits and made the difficult decision to shift course.
