      An update on The National Doctoral Program Survey is below. Although many
      many institutions and programs are represented, many of these have low
      response rates. Please complete the survey yourself (assuming you are or
      have been a doctoral student since January 1, 1995) and encourage others
      to do so as well.

      Thanks for your help!
      Adam

      The National Doctoral Program Survey <http://survey.nagps.org> is your
      opportunity to comment on your doctoral program experience. While over
      16,000 current and recent doctoral students from some 3800+ doctoral
      programs (at more than 370 institutions across the U.S.A. and Canada)
      have already completed The National Doctoral Program Survey, we need
      YOUR participation to make the results meaningful.

      The Survey is available online <http://survey.nagps.org>, takes
      approximately 15 minutes to complete, is anonymous, and is your chance
      to speak up about your experiences with advising, TA and research
      training, and career services (among other things) in your graduate
      department or program. Results will be tabulated by discipline and
      department and made PUBLICLY AVAILABLE on the Internet in Fall 2000
      for those programs with sufficient participation.

      Results will only be released for those degree-granting departments
      with at least 10 responses, to ensure anonymity and provide meaningful
      results. As of May 28, only 404 of the 3804 departments represented
      have satisfied this requirement. The higher the number of responses
      received, the more valuable the data will be to YOU, your graduate
      student association, your institution, and others working to
      improve doctoral education. You can view current participation levels
      from individual programs at your institution by visiting
      <http://survey.nagps.org/survey/participation.cfm>

      Please go to <http://survey.nagps.org> today, complete the survey
      yourself, and send this message on to everyone you know who has been
      enrolled in a doctoral program for at least one semester since 1995.
      Completing this survey (and encouraging others to do the same) only
      takes a few minutes but can stimulate change in graduate education for
      years to come.

      Sincerely,

      The National Doctoral Program Survey Team
      National Association of Graduate-Professional Students (NAGPS)
