New Governance, Dean's Council
& Meaning for your CPED membership
February 22nd @ 11AM-1PM
Rose Room - Marriott
AACTE Annual Meeting
Light Lunch will be served
Memo from CPED Board Chair and Executive Director:
We are writing to invite you to a special meeting for deans of education schools who are members of the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED). The meeting will occur on February 22nd in Louisville, KY in conjunction with the annual meeting of AACTE. We will be meeting in the Rose Room on the second floor of the Louisville Marriott from 11am-1pm with the promise that we will adjourn prior to the Opening Session for the Annual Meeting. A “light lunch” will be served. While I know this special meeting conflicts with meetings of the dean alike groups, we do hope that you will find a way to join us.
After a decade of efforts to build CPED into a viable and sustainable organization, the CPED Board of Directors has endorsed a new set of bylaws to give much greater authority over the program and direction of the Carnegie Project. The Board will establish a Dean’s Council to be made up of dean representatives of CPED member institutions. Through two or three virtual and one face-to-face meetings, we intend to have institutions play a much greater role in shaping the future of CPED. At the Louisville meeting, we want to tell you about these plans and the goals and objectives of this new effort intended to strengthen and expand CPED.
Given the conversation regarding campus-wide professional practice degrees that is occurring in several of the administrator organizations as well as on university campuses, this could be a timely move. CPED was originally created to better differentiate between the two terminal degrees in education and we have made substantial progress in leading that conversation over the past ten years. This move is intended to position CPED in a way that allows it to better represent your interests and concerns in these deliberations. It also provides deans greater voice in shaping the conversation regarding quality assurance measures for advanced programs in professional education that is being advanced by both CAEP and AAQEP.
Members of the CPED Board will discuss these issues as well as describe ways that the CPED Dean’s Council will better inform their deliberations. We will also be electing a representative of the Dean’s Council to the Board of Directors.
Come and join us in Louisville!
David Imig Jill Perry
Chair of the Board Executive Director
