Graduate & Doctoral Education

 
Graduate Students in Transition
Assisting Students Through the First Year
Edited by Kenneth A. Tokuno

On many campuses, graduate students are a prized resource, supporting faculty research and the undergraduate instructional mission. Yet attrition rates among master's and doctoral students are often alarmingly high. The 50th installment of The First-Year Experience Monograph Series describes the challenges associated with entry into graduate study and offers information about new initiatives and programs designed to ease their transition -- from unique orientations and mentoring structures to transition courses and graduate student centers. The monograph is written for educators concerned about master's or doctoral students and their road to success.
