There are a number of national initiatives related to reexamining the purposes and practices of undergraduate and graduate education.  A summary of various initiatives resulting from these initiatives is provided by Jody Nyquist in her article "The Ph.D.: A tapestry of change for the 21st century" (Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 34, 6, 12-20).

Psychology as a discipline, through the APA's Education Directorate, has been involved at one level or another in most of these initiatives. Most are focused on faculty and graduate program development issues.
