Doctoral Education and the MnSCU Mission: Access and Affordability. Response to the 1998 Legislative Directive.
Filipovitch, Tony; Schleuning, Neala
This report represents the response of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities System (MnSCU) to a 1998 legislative directive to assess the feasibility of doctoral degree programs at MnSCU institutions. The report makes recommendations in four areas to be considered by the Board of Trustees: authority, parameters and guidelines, collaboration, and request for legislative change. After an executive summary, six sections present information on: graduate education at Minnesota state universities (access to doctoral programs and reasons for MnSCU to offer doctoral degrees); applied doctoral study in context (definition of applied doctorate and doctoral education in the United States and Minnesota); student interest (the value of student interest and MnSCU survey of the marketplace); labor market demand (educational administration and leadership, psychologists/counselors, higher education faculty in professional fields, and other fields); program quality and accountability; financing graduate education (why graduate education is more expensive, comparative costs, and finance simulation); and recommendations. Appended are the MnSCU graduate program inventory, doctorate in educational leadership, doctorate in clinical psychology/behavioral medicine, and MnSCU graduate council membership.
