The doctoral program assessment committee has begun the task of gathering information about each doctoral program.This information will include:
a) Program response to a questionnaire
b) Data about the program from Campus Profiles (DMI) and Program Profiles (Graduate College) See the blank template and data glossary.
c) A survey of doctoral students in the program
The Executive Officer of each program was contacted on February 2 for a response (5-page maximum) to the questionnaire about their program (item a). The response is due no later than March 18.
The University of Illinois participated in the Carnegie Initiative on the Doctorate (CID). The program questionnaire and the student survey draw on research presented in The Formation of Scholars: Rethinking Doctoral Education for the Twenty-First Century by George E. Walker, Chris M. Golde, Laura Jones, Andrea Conklin Bueschel, and Pat Hutchings (Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 2008).
