Abstract
The University of Southern California (USC) is a Data-Only Partner in Phase II. USC will address Ph.D. attrition patterns and completion patterns in the eight programs mentioned. In addition to the submission of aggregated quantitative completion and attrition data, USC will provide ongoing dis-aggregated data and project assessment on African-American, Hispanic, and female students. USC will focus on attrition patterns and completion rates among underrepresented minorities who have completed their doctoral qualifying exams.
