Meeting the Needs of Doctoral Education in New York State: A Report with Recommendations to the New York State Board of Regents by the Regents Commission on Doctoral Education.
Fleming, Robben W.; And Others
This study of doctoral needs in New York State indicated: (1) In 1970-71 New York graduated about 11% of the Nation's doctorates. (2) New York's system of doctoral education has many individual institutions and programs of high quality. (3) With a few notable exceptions, there has been little significant sharing of resources or interinstitutional cooperation among doctoral programs. (4) There is evidence that the dimensions and nature of future employment for doctorates is changing significantly. (5) Average doctoral education costs per full-time equivalent students are estimated at five times those of undergraduate education. (6) There is evidence that barriers to equal access for all qualified students still exist in New York's doctoral programs. An extensive bibliography and statistical data are included. (Author/MJM)
