GradFUTURES Forum 2021: Student-Centered Graduate Education for the 21st Century - Shared screen with speaker view
Tara King
Hi everyone, happy to be attending this great panel! I am Tara King, a project manager at the Association of American Universities. Our AAU PhD education initiative focuses on student-centered doctoral education. We use the 2018 NASEM report on graduate education’s definition of student centered: https://www.aau.edu/education-community-impact/graduate-education/phd-education-initiative/student-centered
Jessica Basile
Hi everyone, I’m Jessica Basile, associate dean for graduate student affairs at Brandeis University. I have been so appreciative of these panels and the work that you all have done to put together this incredible conference. The need for a student-centered approach to graduate education is exactly what I hear from the graduate students at Brandeis, and of course matches my own experience as well.

We at Rackham modified the NCFDD mentorship map for graduate students. You can find it on page 24 and 25 in our mentoring handbook: https://rackham.umich.edu/downloads/student-mentoring-handbook.pdf

And note that “Mentoring” does not appear in the “Research, Teaching, and Service” professoriate model at all. This, I think, is even more evidence that mentoring (especially for doctoral students who have completed their coursework - and thus are no longer being “taught”) is truly an afterthought.

In the AAU PhD Initiative we use the language “the full range of PhD career pathways.”
Of special interest to this group, perhaps, is our Noon event: Accelerating Humanities Professional Development-- A Conversation with Ann Kirschner *78 (Princeton Trustee and University Professor at CUNY) and Paula Krebs (Executive Director of the MLA): https://gradfutures.princeton.edu/Forum2021/keynoteRSVP
