In order to develop a representative response, the NPAC Sub-committee surveyed NPAC constituents – PhD students in the 6 Nicholas School PhD programs – in October, 2015. The results from this survey were summarized to develop a vision statement, 4 priority areas for change, and specific action items required to move the school’s PhD programs towards the vision.
The vision provides strategic guidance for NPAC’s advocacy efforts. Work on several initiatives contained is already underway.
