The PhD Project Management Doctoral Students Association was created on August 11, 1997 in Boston, Massachusetts as a system of support and a national network for African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Native Americans in the process of pursuing doctoral degrees in Management at universities in the United States of America.

Members of the association voluntarily assume a responsibility to offer moral support and encouragement to African-American, Hispanic-American, and Native American Management doctoral students as they pursue their degrees and take their place in the teaching and research profession. The members serve as mentors to new doctoral students as they enter the association. They act as mentors to their students upon attainment of a teaching position. Additionally, members maintain the highest standards of scholarship in their profession.

Hello MDSA Family,


By now, many of you have probably heard about the devastating tornadoes that swept through the south, especially through the state of Alabama.  Fortunately, all reports seem to indicate that all of the MDSA members and MFCA members in the affected states are safe.  We are thankful for that, but please keep us all in your prayers.  Some of our members may have family or friends who may not have been so lucky.  The damage throughout the states is extensive and restoration will certainly be a challenging feat.  If there are any members who need immediate attention or assistance, please let us know.  We hope you finish the semester strong and have a safe summer.  We look forward to seeing you at this year's MDSA conference in San Antonio.

Hello MDSA Family,

Oscar, Angelica, and I want to offer you some words of encouragement as you finish strong this semester. As mentioned in the Fall newsletter, the motto for this year's MDSA annual conference is Moving Forward, While Giving Back. The end of the semester is a busy time for all of us--whether you are putting the finishing touches on seminar papers, preparing for final exams, or preparing for comps and dissertation proposals and defenses. Remember that there's someone that has blazed the trail before you and is willing to offer you assistance and support. Also, remember that someone is needing your guidance and support. We are in this together.

Enjoy your time after classes end and get ready for our MDSA conference this summer in San Antonio. It's going to be great! Take care.

Hello MDSA members,

Please find information on some interesting Methods articles published in ORM.  Past MDSA member, Herman Aguinis, has a really good article in it!

Dear RM, HR and OB Netters:

Apologies in advance for any cross-postings.  Just wanted to alert you to the table of contents for the April 2011 issue of Organizational Research Methods.  In addition to regular feature articles and book reviews, this issue includes a feature topic on statistical and methodological myths and urban legends guest edited by Charles Lance.  The feature topic addresses the myths within control variables, formative indicators, meta-analysis, etc.
