Purpose of the Initiative
Time to degree remains persistently high in our country, and the University of Arizona is no exception to this. While in the STEM fields students take on average seven years to earn a PhD, those in some humanities fields can take more than nine years to complete their degrees.
The Graduate College cordially invites faculty, students, and staff to a Special Seminar series on Reducing Time to Doctoral Degree this Spring semester. A great group of excellent on-campus and visiting guest speakers will present and discuss key issues, activities and strategies that they have developed and/or are available to help doctoral students complete their degrees successfully and in a timely fashion.

The Graduate College is excited to announce a series of workshops on the topic of Graduate Enrollment Management. The series starts in late August and ends in January, 2018. This series is designed for faculty, directors of graduate study, graduate admission committee members, and graduate coordinators. Graduate enrollment management (GEM) is a systematic approach to managing the graduate student life cycle from initial awareness to alumna/alumnus by integrating the core functions associated with the enrollment and support of a graduate student.
Communicating the value of one’s research to the general public can be a difficult task. But the UA prepares graduate students to do just that.
