Carnegie Initiative on the Doctorate
How do we define success in training graduate
students for the doctoral degree?
What is an effective mentoring relationship
to a student?
How can we improve delineation of our strengths
in recruitment of graduate students?
What does it mean to be a "steward of the discipline" of Neuroscience?
These are questions being addressed by the Graduate Program in
Neuroscience at the University of Minnesota in partnership with
the Carnegie Foundation. The Graduate Program in Neuroscience
recently was selected as one of only nine neuroscience programs
nation-wide to participate in the Carnegie Initiative on the Doctorate
(CID), a multi-year action and research project aimed at improving
doctoral education at American universities.
