The Graduate department chair just sent out an email to all graduate students with only a link:


That was it. No explanation, no exegesis. Just the link, sent to all MA and PhD students.

The article is about the lack of transparency in graduate programs’ public record of graduate placement in the job field.

Which is something our department keeps silent about, as well.

So, I am a little confused. Is the chair criticizing his department for not being open about placement? Is he warning the students that are already members of the department that they should look at how transparent a department is about this information before attending?
