New PhD Network and what it means for faculty, students

Northeastern has launched the PhD Network, an organization designed to serve a key link for doctoral students to access a range of university-wide resources, while also complementing programming already in place within colleges and departments. The goal of the network is two-fold: to build a sense of community among doctoral students, and to offer opportunities that will enhance their educational experiences.

Earlier this month, Northeastern announced the appointments of Sara Wadia-Fascetti as vice provost for the PhD Network and Phil He as vice provost for graduate education, effective July 1. They served on the PhD Joint Task Force, which, in conjunction with the university’s academic planning process and Northeastern 2025, was critical in realizing the new PhD Network.
