This is the report of the 1968 annual conference of the Western Association of Graduate Schools. The major theme of the conference was planning for graduate education in the 70's.

The second general session dealt with the innovations and changes to be expected and the important elements in planning in the academic disciplines and professional schools. The third session was concerned with planning for the admission and care of graduate students, as well as addresses more specifically focused on student environment, prediction of academic success, and the future of graduate fellowships. Speeches presented in the fourth session provided a review and evaluation of current programs, degree requirement rules and procedures; the fifth session dealt with the future administrative organization of the graduate school. The sixth and final session was a business meeting at which new officers were elected and various resolutions made. (HS)
