Higher Education Doctoral Programs: A Demographic Portrait.
Nelson, Glenn M.
New Directions for Higher Education, n76 p69-76 Win 1991
A study of 65 doctoral programs in higher education indicates disturbing trends: (1) mergers into larger academic units; (2) significant decline in student diversity among rather stable populations; and (3) retirement of most tenured faculty within 10 years. Despite continuity and stability overall, these changes suggest a need for unified strategies to maintain vitality. (MSE)
