Fiona Doyle joined six of the Graduate Deans from the UC System on December 4, 2018, for a day of advocacy on graduate education. The group met with leaders from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, along with staffers from the House Science, Space and Technology Committee and the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee. Their discussions focused on measures that could assist in the implementation of the recommendations of the recent report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine on Graduate STEM Education for the 21st Century.
