The article discusses the development of adult learners, both personally and professionally, from the process of becoming a doctoral learner. It reveals that adult learners develop the art of balancing their personal life, their professional life, and their commitment to their educational pursuits. It also examines how doctoral learners' age can be an element in how they are accepted by faculty and by peers within the doctoral community.
