Dialogue Series Focuses on the Future of Doctoral Education

Duquesne University’s School of Education is hosting Creating Intellectual Community: An Argument for the Future of Doctoral Education, the third lecture in its Dialogue Series focusing on how scholarship in the profession of education is shaping public policy.

Chris M. Golde, associate vice provost for graduate education at Stanford University, will discuss the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching’s study, a five-year action and research project that worked with doctoral-granting departments committed to restructuring their programs to better prepare graduates among six disciplines—chemistry, education, English, history, mathematics and neuroscience.

A former Carnegie senior scholar and research director for the Carnegie Initiative on the Doctorate, Golde is co-author of The Formation of Scholars: Rethinking Doctoral Education for the Twenty-First Century.

The event is free and open to the public—reservations are requested, but not required.

When: Thursday, Oct. 9, from 4 to 5:30 p.m.

Where: The Power Center Ballroom, Duquesne University, Forbes Avenue at Chatham Square.

Information: To register, call 412.396.1360 or visit www.education.duq.edu/dialogueseries.
