The Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED) is a consortium of over 80 colleges and schools of education that work together on a national scale to examine and evaluate the doctorate in education (EdD) degree.

"By being in this consortium, we will be taking a critical look at all aspects of our two EdD programs – their curriculum, how it is delivered and organized, what we do to assess progress in the courses and degrees, how we admit students and more." said Micheal Sayler, senior associate dean for academic affairs and research for the College of Education.

"Participation in this national effort will strengthen our already popular programs and put them on the cutting edge of innovation in these professional practice degrees," said Sayler. "Reviewing our degrees and doing some restructuring of them should encourage more students to come into the programs and prepare those that do even better for their leadership roles in K-12 settings and in higher education."

UNT's College of Education is represented in the consortium by two faculty members: Pu-Shih Daniel Chen for the Higher Education EdD and Miriam Ezzani for the Educational Leadership EdD.
