Membership Renewal Information

The work we are doing and what we aim to provide for EdD programs during this pandemic is more important now than ever before. CPED has taken steps and will continue to add useful and timely resources and services to help our members address pressing concerns. 

We hope that you will take the time to renew your membership and remain part of our consortium. CPED renewal information can be accessed and paid by any key contact at your institution. Default key contacts are Deans and Delegates but can also be any faculty or administrator designated to upkeep the institution’s profile information. 

Key contacts can edit institutional information, pay membership invoices, and add linked profiles to your institution’s membership – see the Members Guide for instructions or use this video tutorial to guide you in how to access and pay your invoice. Membership renewal is due by August 1, 2020.

We are living through challenging times and CPED seeks to support our institutional members, faculty, and the broader CPED community. In just a matter of weeks our daily lives have radically changed and we understand that your institution may be experiencing uncertainty.
