Institutional Membership

Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) granting institutions only with a sustained record of recruiting, retaining and graduating scholars, and particularly those who are traditionally underrepresented in the academy, are eligible to form a chapter; by invitation only. Invited institutions are expected to demonstrate prior reform efforts designed to promote diversity and excellence in doctoral education.

All invited institutions must exhibit a track record of promoting diversity within graduate education through both matriculation and graduation statistics of underrepresented groups within the academy. Moreover, invited institutions should demonstrate their commitment to diversity in graduate education through PhD-granting programs by exhibiting a track record of training underrepresented students in the academy for employment in the academy and beyond.
