The Doctorate in Educational Leadership
Duquesne University's School of Education enjoys a national reputation in educational leadership. It was one of 22 research universities elected by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching in 2007 to participate in the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED). CPED is an ongoing effort to rethink and redesign the professional doctorate in education to better serve those who aspire to practice educational leadership. The second phase of CPED-funded by a major federal grant-is headquartered at Duquesne. As a consequence of our CPED efforts, Duquesne's School of Education has revised its Ed.D. program in educational leadership.
