The Responsive Ph.D. (2000-2006) built on previous national studies and projects that identified a mismatch between the kinds of training Ph.D.s receive in graduate school and the careers available to them. The Responsive Ph.D. initiative sought to sharpen these findings into recommendations for change and to foster models for innovation that will provide a richer purpose and a richer population for doctoral education.
