  1. The Importance of the Humanities in Graduate Education

  2. The Carnegie Initiative on the Doctorate (CID) was a five-year partnership with 106 doctoral-granting departments/ programs, encompassing six disciplines: chemistry, education, English, history, mathematics and neuroscience. • The CID team included: • George E. Walker, Project Director • Chris M. Golde, Research Director • Laura Jones • Andrea Conklin Bueschel • Pat Hutchings

  3. Approach • Engage departments in a process of self-discovery about their doctoral program • A true partnership, no foundation grants or particular agenda (“their work”)—Carnegie convenes and facilitates, local administration provides needed support • Work at the department (program) level • Graduate student and critical mass of faculty engaged for 3 to 5 years—departmental and university engagement • RFP—document resources and readiness for sustained effort

  4. Characteristics of CID • Stewards of the Discipline—P.A.R.T. • Essays, site visits, Carnegie convenings, surveys, interviews • Accountability—programs decide what they need to do, do it, tell others, and evaluate • Accountability—engage in unnatural acts of critical self-examination publicly, work with “critical friends” • Develop a vision regarding the Ph.D. program, and work to make the vision a reality

  5. Essayists: • Joyce Appleby—History • Hyman Bass—Mathematics • Thomas Bender—History • David C. Berliner—Education • Ronald Breslow—Chemistry • Tony F. Chan—Mathematics • William Cronon—History • Yehuda Elkana—Sciences • Gerald Graff--English • Zach W. Hall-Biochemistry • Steven E. Hyman—Neurobiology • Alvin L. Kwiram—Chemistry • Andrea Abernathy Lunsford—English • Virginia Richardson—Education • Angelica M. Stacy—Chemistry • Catharine R. Stimpson—English
