PhD Pathways Initiative
NASPAA seeks to increase the number of Under-Represented Minorities with PhD's in the Public Affairs field; and to provide information and resources to potential doctoral candidates of all backgrounds to assist them in navigating the doctoral education process.

NASPAA have developed the following two surveys to better understand the current state of doctoral education in our field and in our programs.
