KIND Snacks donated over 7,000 KIND bars to The Council of Graduate Students to complete this year’s end-of-semester De-stress & Rest Kits. COGS would like to thank KIND Snacks for their contribution to the wellness of graduate students during finals. This is the second year that KIND Snacks has donated to COGS.
MSU Council of Graduate Students (COGS) established an endowment to recognize disciplinary leadership by graduate and grad-professional students. Graduate students regularly (not provisionally or lifelong) enrolled in a graduate or grad-professional program at MSU and who are in good standing in their programs may apply for the COGS Disciplinary Leadership Award.
Information about the award can be found at: https://grad.msu.edu/cogs
For the 2017-18 awards, students will apply through MSU Scholarships / AcademicWorks.
Deadline for applying is December 15, 2017.
The 10th Annual Graduate Academic Conference will be held on February 17, 2018 at the MSU Union. All MSU graduate and professional students may attend and present their research. Submissions are being accepted for 3 different presentation formats: 10-minute talks, posters, and a Three Minute Thesis Competition. The submission deadline is January 12th, 2018. Visit cogs.msu.edu/gac for more info and to submit.
Presenters will have the opportunity to participate in workshops on digital presence in academia and an improv-based workshop designed to help develop skills communicating to a variety of audiences.
This is an exciting daylong event that brings together graduate and professional students across disciplines for a day of discourse relating to their research with the potential to discover new frontiers for interdisciplinary collaboration.
We hope you’ll be part of it!
