Reimagining the 21st-Century Land Grant Ph.D.

The development of a mission-driven model for doctoral education.

“Reimagining the 21st-Century Land Grant Ph.D.” envisions placing Washington State University’s land grant mission of public service at the heart of its humanities doctoral programs. Concentrating in particular on underserved communities, the proposal will catalyze discussions and regional site visits focusing on partnering with rural communities state-wide, expanding digital outreach and skills-building, and revising graduate program requirements to support more culturally-sensitive models of public engagement. These discussions will include not only humanities faculty, graduate students, and alumni but also key administrators and faculty from WSU’s Native American program office, its state-wide Extension Service, and its new School of Medicine, all of which have extensive experience in community-based research and learning. Together we will begin planning a potentially distinctive national model for a Ph.D. that is not only discipline-specific but also mission-driven.
