The School of Education’s doctor of education in leading and learning (EdD) program has earned two national honors for its innovative programming and research partnerships, including a Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED) designation and a national Research Partnership affiliation.
The Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate recently announced the selection of the School of Education’s EdD program into its consortium. The University of Portland joins top schools of education engaged in the redesign of professional practice doctoral preparation in education for the improvement of Pk-20 education and leadership practice. New member institutions were chosen through a competitive application process and evaluated by a committee composed of faculty members of current CPED institutions.
Earlier this year, UP’s School of Education was inducted into the National Network of Education Research-Practice Partnerships (NNERPP). The organization promotes the work of twelve nationally recognized university programs that work in partnership with P-12 schools and school districts. The School of Education’s innovative Multnomah County Partnership for Education Research partners with the six school districts of Multnomah County and Northwest Evaluation Association to engage doctoral candidates in applied research and program evaluation services to support educational improvement and innovation. NNERPP supports the UP partnership through dissemination of its model programming and publications.
The nationally accredited School of Education’s EdD program combines innovative coursework and faculty expertise with applied research and best practices to prepare the next generation of leaders. The School’s graduate programs prepare teachers and administrators for public and private schools through curriculum experiences designed to develop expertise in early childhood, elementary, middle, and high school education, various academic disciplines, and special endorsements in educational administration, English as a second language, special education, and reading.
