I am grateful to The PhD Project for encouraging and supporting this work. This work would not have been possible without the opportunity to study The PhD Project model for an extended period of time. I thank Bernard J. Milano for his ongoing support and guidance. I appreciate the time spent by Marie Zara, Tara Perino, Cristina Pazos, Myrna Varner, Lisa King and Ned Steele in helping me find information and in connecting me to individuals in The PhD Project network. I am grateful to Dr. Martin Dias, Dr. Kenneth Henry, Dr. Lucy Reuben, Dr. Laura Trevino, and other The PhD Project faculty and students for their insightful comments and suggestions. Boaz Branding played an important role in helping me move from a conceptual design to a practical model as well as for helping me create a website and social media presence that has made it much easier to engage others in “The PhD Project for All” conversations. Finally, I am grateful to those outside The PhD Project who have spent much time discussing The PhD Project model. I appreciate the insightful comments and suggestions of David Braden, Dr. Deanne Butchey, Idania Cater, Dr. Renu Desai, Bradford Hansen-Smith, Nicole Jobson, Peter Jones, Michael Josefowicz, Tammy Lea Meyer, Yves Muya­-Benda, Phil Shepherd, Esteban Trev, Rajiv Vasudevan, Dave Wolf and Xiao Qiao Zhou. I hope to continue engaging these individuals and others as I continue this journey!
