Georgia Regents University’s College of Education will join 87 institutions from around the country for the Carnegie Project on the Educational Doctorate Consortium. GRU is one of only four institutions in the state to be admitted into the program.
CPED is an action-oriented initiative where a small number of colleges and schools of education come together to institute a clear distinction between the professional practice doctorate in education and the education research doctorate; and to improve reliability and efficacy of programs leading to the professional doctorate in education.
“We are honored to be accepted into the Consortium and we look forward to working with this elite cohort of colleges to improve P-20 educational opportunities,” said Dr. Cindi Chance, Dean of the College of Education at GRU.
GRU has plans to introduce a new doctoral degree in educational innovation in 2015, pending approval from the University System of Georgia Board of Regents.
“Education is such an important component of our society and we are excited to be a part of an organization that provides an opportunity to work with other universities to develop innovative ways to redesign doctoral programs in education,” she said.
