The Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED) has accepted eleven new higher education institution members to join the consortium in 2019. The new member institutions are:

Clemson University
Iowa State University
New Jersey City University
Radford University
Sacred Heart University
The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley
University of Buffalo - SUNY
University of California, Davis
University of Southern Indiana
University of West Alabama
University of Wyoming

These institutions join our 105 current institution members in the important work of redesigning professional practice preparation in education for the improvement of PK-20 education and the organizations that support it. CPED institution members are a network that stimulate each institution's work and provide space for sharing, learning and providing feedback in a national dialogue across faculty, students and administrators in Doctor of Education (EdD) programs.

New members were chosen through a rigorous application process and evaluated by a membership committee composed of leaders of current CPED institution members. Based on the application and support materials of each of these new institution members, CPED anticipates that adding these institutions to the Consortium will add a value that will push CPED’s collective work even farther. “We’re very excited to welcome these new institution members to CPED’s growing consortium and to see the contributions they will make in transforming the EdD to meet the educational needs of the 21st century,” said CPED executive director Jill A. Perry, PhD.
CPED hosts two bi-annual convenings that take place at one of its member institutions in June and October of each year. New institution members will be invited to attend the upcoming CPED Convening to be held at University of Nebraska – Lincoln in Lincoln, Nebraska from June 10 – 12, 2019. The theme of this convening is Assuring Quality, Transformation and Brand in CPED-influenced EdD Programs, offering new institution members an opportunity to explore strategies that ensure quality standards while meeting the needs of scholarly practitioners in CPED-influenced EdD programs. Additionally, new members will meet current CPED members with experience related to both technical and adaptive organizational issues that arise in the process of redesigning EdD programs.
