Catharine R. Stimpson's essay on General Education for Graduate Education appeared in November 2002 in the Chronicle for Higher Education.

An excellent report on the need to change the traditional single-discipline model of graduate education in the natural sciences in response to the complex global issues of scientific challenges in the 21st century.

"The Ph.D.: A Tapestry of Change for the 21st Century" by Jody Nyquist (2002, November/December) from the magazine Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 34 (6),12-20 is an interesting report that discusses the evolving nature of the Ph.D. program and the need to enhance it in many ways, with interdisciplinarity being one factor.

George E. Walker, Chris M. Golde, Laura Jones, Andrea Conklin Bueschel, and Pat Hutchings, "The Importance of Intellectual Community" (The Chronicle Review 54.15, December 14, 2007). An excellent article on intellectual community and graduate education.
