Faculty urged to take part in national study

Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Richard Lariviere is strongly urging all faculty eligible to participate in the National Research Council study on research-doctorate programs to complete their questionnaires by Feb. 15 to be considered by the NRC to serve as a rater for programs at other universities. Those who do not wish to be considered should submit by April 1.

Questionnaire Information

Information for NRC Study Participants
Eligible faculty will receive a link to the online survey with logon and password information from the NRC contractor. Faculty in eligible programs have been notified by e-mail and through U.S. mail.

The NRC study, the first since 1995, is designed to help universities improve the quality of doctoral programs through benchmarking; provide potential students and the public with accessible, readily available information on doctoral programs nationwide; and enhance the nation's overall research capacity. For more information, contact Kathleen McCluskey-Fawcett or Deb Teeter.
