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.
