As a strand of the Conference on English Education, the CEE Graduate Strand (CEE-GS) is comprised of graduate students who are members of the larger CEE community. Our purpose is to inform and recruit English teachers considering graduate degrees in the field of English education. Our group serves as a support system for students as they consider a program, continue their education, and work toward matriculation. Our group seeks to create partnerships, provide collaborative opportunities, develop institutional supports, and facilitate career advancement.
Benefits of Membership in CEE-GS
Membership in the CEE Graduate Strand (CEE-GS) provides graduate students with the opportunity to begin networking with the peers they will work alongside over the course of their careers. Moreover, it provides opportunities for establishing collaborative partnerships and forming a peer-based support system to enhance the graduate student experience.

Involvement at Professional Conferences
The CEE-GS is actively involved at professional conferences, both in the form of facilitating formal sessions that address issues related to graduate studies in English education and offering social activities specifically for graduate students.
