Description

On May 29, join us at the National Academies for the launch of Graduate STEM Education for the 21st Century, a consensus study re-visiting a 20-year old report on the state of graduate education in the United States. The study, chaired by Alan Leshner, CEO Emeritus of AAAS, and funded by the National Science Foundation, Institute of Education Sciences, Burroughs Wellcome Fund, and the Spencer Foundation is a comprehensive look at the U.S. graduate education system, identifying policies, programs, and practices that could better meet the diverse education and career needs of graduate students in the coming years.

The following Committee Members will be on hand to provide commentary about the report:

  • Alan Leshner (chair), Chief Executive Officer Emeritus, AAAS

  • Mary Sue Coleman, President, Association of American Universities (AAU)

  • Kenneth Gibbs, Jr., Program Director, National Institute of General Medical Sciences

  • Suzanne Ortega, President, Council of Graduate Schools

  • Kate Stoll, Senior Policy Advisor, MIT Washington
