Regional News

The Western Region of NAGPS is the largest and most diverse region. Containing both the most and least populous states in the United States, the Western Region covers 13 states as well as the Pacific territories. The region covers schools as diverse as Alaska’s distance-education oriented schools, the strong unions at the University of California system and the fragmented-by-design University of Colorado system. But the issues of health care, research vs. teaching vs. service, intellectual property, and respect from undergraduates, faculty, and administration for the unique and essential contributions of graduate students transcend our individual schools.
