Graduate Student Success

Attrition in U.S. graduate programs is a tremendous waste of American’s financial resources and human energies. Increasing demand for workers with advanced training at the graduate level, an inadequate domestic talent pool, and a small representation of women and minority graduates at all education levels are among some growing concerns over workforce issues that relate to the vitality and competitiveness of the U.S. economy. Improving completion rates for all doctoral students, and particularly for those from underrepresented groups, is vital to meeting our nation’s present and future workforce needs.
