"These practices and other changes in the landscape of the doctorate invite us to rethink educational policy at the core. Through an initial stage of Woodrow Wilson Roundtables and Regional Retreats, the Foundation will help to bring the national conversation begun at the Re-envisioning conference to an individual, institutional level of creative planning and translation of ideas into bold actions. Our goal is to create collaboratively a set of guidelines for improving doctoral education, to help PhD programs make these promising practices - especially those that enable the doctorate a richer purpose and population - regular features of A More Responsive PhD."
