Supporting Graduate Students Through the Use of Graduate Student Organizations
MetadataShow full metadata
In the United States, graduate education has become necessary to maintain a stable economy (Pascale, 2018). According to Torpey and Watson (2014), jobs requiring a master’s degree or higher represent the fastest growing employment opportunities and are expected to increase by 18% by the year 2022. Similarly, research suggests as many as 10% of management-level or higher jobs will require graduate training. According to the National Center for Educational Statistics (2019), as many as three million graduate students attend degreegranting postsecondary institutions in the United States. Despite this growing need for universities to produce graduate students, as many as 50% of graduate students leave prior to earning their degree (Nettles & Millet, 2006).
