Dissertation in Practice Award Committee
The Dissertation in Practice (DiP) of the Year Award Committee is comprised of a group of CPED faculty members who work collaboratively over the course of an award cycle receive and review DiP submissions from member institution graduates and select an annual award winner(s) that offers an exemplar of the CPED definition of Dissertation in Practice. The Award process is both a means to honor exemplars from member institutions and a means to learn about the changes to dissertations that strengthen, improve, support, and promote the CPED framework through continued collaboration and investigation.
