ASHA, in conjunction with the Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CAPCSD), has established an Ad Hoc Joint Committee on the Shortage of PhD Students and Faculty in CSD. This committee was established in September 2001 and will continue through September 2002. The overall charge of this committee is to develop a strategic plan with short and long-term goals to address the doctoral shortage in the discipline.
At the April 2002 CAPCSD annual conference held in Palm Springs, California, the Ad Hoc Committee sponsored a session for representatives of doctoral-granting institutions to discuss the problems they are experiencing related to the recruitment and retention of doctoral students and faculty. There were approximately 60 representatives from doctoral programs in attendance at this meeting. Some of the problems that programs are facing include the recruitment of quality students, locating funding sources for doctoral students, and increasing the diversity of students applying for doctoral study. Discussion centered on student recruitment strategies and, doctoral education models. At the CAPCSD meeting there was a second breakout session for faculty from undergraduate and master’s degree programs to suggest possible joint efforts between these programs and doctoral programs to identify potential PhD students.
