In September 2008, the Graduate School held the first of four best practices seminars that are part of the Graduate School’s Initiative to Optimize Doctoral Completion. Four faculty members shared ideas about the information that they have included on their Websites to help prospective doctoral students make good decisions about applying to their programs and the reasons they thought this information was important for recruiting the best students.
