The work of the 75 institutions participating in PhD Career Pathways has already provided valuable information about the careers of humanities PhD alumni and the career aspirations of humanities PhD students and informed positive programmatic changes at participating universities. The Humanities Coalition network is building on this work to enhance the knowledge base and suite of promising practices that better support preparation for diverse humanities careers.
Three cohorts were created and 16 institutions were selected based on proposed projects in the following areas: Preparing for Diverse Careers, Grant Writing and Securing Resources, and Building Professional Relationships
