Antecedents and Outcomes: Theories of Fit and the Study of Doctoral Education
Baker, Vicki L.; Pifer, Meghan J.
Studies in Higher Education, v40 n2 p296-310 2015
This paper explores fit as an important theoretical construct in the study of doctoral education and doctoral student development. We discuss how research based on three types of fit (person-environment fit, person-culture fit, person-vocation fit) may provide critical insights into the doctoral student experience, and offer a framework based on antecedents and outcomes to support future research. We conclude with an application of this framework to two understudied populations of doctoral students and future research directions.
