Doctoral Students & Candidates

Most of our doctoral students are mid-to-late in their careers and have significant experience in the public, private, and/or nonprofit sectors. Some hold administrative positions in these sectors, and many are closely involved in developing and evaluating public policies at the federal, state, and/or local levels.

These students are completing their doctoral coursework, preparing for their qualifying exams, or working on their dissertations.
