Professor Selected for Vision Team to Lead Initiatives for Education Doctorate

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Dr. Randall Bowden, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership in the College of Education at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, has been selected as one of six individuals across the nation to be part of the Strategic Visioning Team for the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED).

“It is an honor to be selected as a team member to participate in leading initiatives that will change the history of the educational doctorate,” said Bowden.  “Participation aligns superbly with the University’s Momentum 2020 values in excellence to pursue distinction in learning, discovery, creativity, innovation, engagement and cultural enrichment, and leadership to model a culture of service to the university, our community, and the world.”

The team's goal is to develop a new three-to-five year strategic vision for CPED that would focus on key areas as research and policy, membership, networking, and outreach. This vision would be developed through a multi-leveled process that will include input from broad to specific membership and leadership.

The CPED is a consortium of more than 80 colleges and schools of education, which have committed resources to work together to undertake a critical examination of the doctorate in education (Ed.D.) through dialog, experimentation, critical feedback, and evaluation. The COE's Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership was selected to join this project in 2014.
