[Press release published on behalf of CPED.] The Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED) and its Board of Directors have accepted 22 new graduate schools of education (see list below) as members into the consortium. These institutions join more than 80 current schools of education 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 and their faculty engage in a model of professional development to learn from and with each other the best ways to design professional preparation. New members were chosen through an application process and evaluated by a CPED committee composed of faculty members of current CPED institutions. Based on the application and support materials provided by each new member, CPED anticipates that adding these institutions to the consortium will add a immense value and push CPED’s collective work even farther.  

CPED hosts bi-annual convenings which take place at our 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 the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (CPED’s Headquarters) June 12-14, 2017. This convening will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of CPED and its theme, "Reclaiming to Innovating: CPED @ 10 years," offers new institution members an opportunity to explore how the CPED Framework has impacted the EdD across multiple contexts. 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 the EdD.
