The education doctorate (Ed.D.) differs from the Ph.D. in that it is a practitioner’s degree instead of a research degree.

“With an ed doctorate, graduates can more effectively integrate educational policy, tools and resources in the schools,” said Phyllis Erdman (https://education.wsu.edu/perdman/), executive associate dean for academic affairs in the WSU College of Education.

“We have unique educational challenges this century, and CPED’s vision is to help prepare leaders who can rise to meet the demands of those challenges,” said Rick Sawyer (https://education.wsu.edu/rsawyer/), conference chair and WSU educational leadership professor.

“We need strong leaders in our schools,” Erdman said. “The stronger the educational doctorate programs are in this country, the more possibility there is for overall school success.”

The WSU college will co-host the gathering with Portland State University.
