Benchmarking Graduate School Development Practices
Poock, Michael C.; Siegel, David J.
International Journal of Educational Advancement, v6 n1 p11-19 Nov 2005
There is little empirical evidence documenting the development activities of academic units in colleges and universities. This study attempts to bridge the knowledge gap by examining the development practices of graduate schools, which confront special challenges in their efforts to generate private support. Results from a survey of member institutions of the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) are reported and discussed. This field-level perspective should provide scholars with a better understanding of the everexpanding development practices at academic institutions while assisting graduate school administrators or other unit leaders interested in a comparative context for their development efforts.
