Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED)

The Knowledge Forum on the EdD 

The CPED consortium includes over 135 colleges and schools of education across the US, Canada, and Ireland. 

Our members have committed resources to work together to undertake a critical examination of the doctorate in education (EdD) through dialog, experimentation, critical feedback, and evaluation.


Announcing the 2022 CPED Program of the Year Winners!

The POY Committee ended their finalist deliberations for this year’s POY award with a decision that these two outstanding programs, in quite different ways, deserve recognition in how they have approached social justice-driven innovation. We are thrilled to welcome Baylor and Northeastern Universities into the proud fold of POY award winners.

You will have an opportunity to learn more about these programs at our October convening
