This report expands on a previous working group’s effort to clarify the alignment of existing scholarship around doctoral education with how students move through the process at Walden University (Salter et al., 2013). Following up on the recommendations in that report, the current working group was charged with understanding students’ readiness or preparedness to move through these stages/phases across the entire student timeline from prospect to graduate. Additionally, the group attempted to map the services currently in place to support that journey while identifying opportunities to improve it.
