Research: Attrition, Persistence and Socialization in Doctoral Education: Trends, Factors, Solutions

BACKGROUND: For many years, research in the U.S. and Canada has continued to show that students who enter doctoral programs (Ph.D. and Ed.D) have a 50% chance of never completing their degrees. This is a subject that I have researched for more than 30 years, since first embarking on my own successful PhD journey in 1989.
