Please e-mail gpeinfo@ecu.edu.

How do I know if I my institution is a GPE Member Institution?

Please check our network site. All our current member institutions are on the map. Not all prospective partners are on the map…if you would like to check if your institution is on the prospective partner list, or would like to start a discussion about that, please contact gpeinfo@ecu.edu.

Why was the conference moved on-line?

After speaking with a number of partners, it became clear that while for some travel to the US was a welcome activity, for many who regularly attend, continued barriers to travel including the inability to get visas, mandatory vaccines, testing, and the possibility of quarantining both in the US and upon return home eliminated that possibility.

Will this conference ever be in-person again?

Yes! We are as hopeful to return to in-person conferences as you are. We plan to hold GPE XVI in person here in Greenville in May of 2023.
