The American Historical Association is pleased to announce the fifth in a series of workshops for department chairs, directors of graduate studies, and others interested in various aspects of graduate education. “Promoting Progress: An Interactive Workshop for Directors of Graduate Studies,” will take place on August 2 – 3, 2007, at the Holiday Inn Rosslyn in Virginia. The event will focus on the many crucial and complex challenges involved in ensuring successful and smooth progress of graduate students toward a degree. Faculty involved in MA and PhD programs will give brief presentations, but a significant amount of time has been allotted for discussion between attendees. Topics that will be addressed at the workshop include:
- How Should Students Be Prepared for PhD Work?
- Recruitment and Retention of Women and Minorities for Graduate Work
- Retention of Graduate Students
While the workshop is of particular interest to directors of graduate education, others interested in graduate education are also welcomed. See the web site for a complete schedule, or contact Noralee Frankel for more information and directions on how to register.
