TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.

Someone requested information about Ph.D. programs in Technical Communication.
FYI: The Society for Technical Communication maintains a directory of all
programs in technical communication--bachelor's, master's and Ph.D. You
can contact the Society at 703-522-4114 or stc -at- tmn -dot- com (Dave Pfister--this
is the organization you requested information about).
That said, the schools with Ph.D. programs are:
o Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA)
o Michigan Technological University (Houghton, MI)
o Rensallear Polytechnical University (Troy, NY)
o University of Minnesota (St. Paul, MN)
I've heard that the University of Washington is working on a program, but do
not know its status.
