Announcing the 2021 Program of the Year Award Winner

Western Carolina University - Executive EdD in Educational Leadership

The CPED Program of the Year Award is given annually to an institution whose CPED-influenced program shows themselves to be distinctive, innovative, and useful to other CPED members. In other words, this award is not intended to identify a so-called “best” program among CPED members, but rather offer evidence of a proofing site that lifts up and features a program’s approaches and components that might stimulate change and innovation among other CPED-influenced programs.

Western Carolina University is an “Experienced” member of CPED with seven years of proud membership. The program is a hybrid (face-to-face and online instructional delivery), cohort model — designed across three years (including summers) for practicing educational leaders in PK-12, community college, and 4-year college/university settings.
