NCA's Doctoral Education Committee recognizes that BIPOC students face unique challenges and obstacles in doctoral programs. This roundtable brings together current and recent doctoral students alongside experienced doctoral mentors and advisors to discuss those challenges and brainstorm interventions capable of creating inclusive doctoral programs that facilitate BIPOC student success. We will listen to the experiences of current and recent students, share best practices, and think collaboratively about novel strategies. In keeping with the convention theme, we will think about ways to renew and transform our doctoral programs to nurture diverse and equitable future generations of scholars.
