Announcing the Winner of the 2023 Program of the Year Award

Announcing the 2023 CPED Program of the Year Winner
University of Pittsburgh - Doctor of Education

CPED had an outstanding pool of applicants for the 2023 Program of the Year (POY) award! After lengthy deliberations and a rigorous screening process that involved an 8-member committee, representing just under 10% of CPED’s membership, the CPED Program of the Year (POY) Committee is pleased to announce the University of Pittsburgh as the 2023 Program of the Year. 

The University of Pittsburgh’s (Pitt) EdD is a program encompassing multiple aspects of transformation that deliberately weaves leadership, equity, health, and justice into the coursework and transforms experienced professionals into scholarly practitioners who are equipped to address inequities with improvement science methodologies. Experienced practitioners have the option of selecting one of eight majors to dive deeply into the causes of current inequities and gain a comprehensive view of education and health in society. Students learn from peers and faculty experts and gain the tools needed to manage change in complex systems and work to create a more just future.

POY 2023: From Transformation to Impact: EdD Programmatic Successes

Transform in Latin (tranformare) means to “change in shape, metamorphose.” The verb is a combination of “trans” which means across or to go beyond and “form” which means to shape, fashion, build ( Over the last 15 years of CPED, members have reshaped and refashioned the EdD to go beyond traditional doctoral preparation toward a professional practice doctorate.
