Expected Program Outcomes:
Faculty in the program are committed to making sure that, first and foremost, completion of the program will positively impact the doctoral students themselves as they develop as professionals and leaders in their classrooms, schools, and communities. In turn, their leadership should serve to strengthen those contexts, leading to positive impact on teaching and learning. As an institution with many partnerships across New York City, the university, too, should see the benefits that result from doctoral students’ participation in the EdD program. It is the hope of the program that doctoral students will help strengthen existing partnerships and forge new ones.
