Survey on Doctoral Education and
Career Preparation

The Survey on Doctoral Education and Career Preparation is a national survey of doctoral students intended to provide a snapshot of their experiences and goals. Over 4,000 students completed the 20-page survey. These students were from 27 selected universities, one cross-institutional program (The Compact for Faculty Diversity), and represented 11 arts and sciences disciplines.

The survey was conducted in 1999, and preliminary results were made available beginning in 2000. The summary report, "At Cross Purposes:  What the experiences of today's doctoral students reveal about doctoral education," was released in January, 2001, and additional papers will appear thereafter. The link below takes you to a PDF copy of the report that you can down load.  Please look further at the web site to learn more about the project.
