3 3 Doctoral Program Mission / Goals Mission Statement: UM-Dearborn is dedicated to actively using our resources as a university to help address the issues currently facing education in southeastern Michigan and our nation. The UM-Dearborn Doctoral Degree in Education was created to provide the highly skilled change agents needed to reach this goal. Graduates will meet the demands of education for today and the future through engagement with community, transformational leadership, and scholarly practice. Ed. D. Guiding Principles Community Engagement - Build real-world educational solutions through involvement with local communities Transformational Leadership - Achieve positive organizational change through decisive, equitable and just practices Scholarly Practice - Integrate theory and practice with best-evidence-based approaches to address current issues in education
4 4 Program Overview The Doctoral program at UM-Dearborn has four interrelated areas of concentration: Educational Leadership will prepare with the leadership and administrative skills to identify, solve and anticipate the challenges facing Michigan and our nation s schools, and institutions of higher education. Metropolitan Education will prepare candidates to assume leadership positions in urban school systems and other educational agencies as they focus their study on the historical, political, economic, and socio-cultural context of communities and schools. Curriculum and Practice will prepare candidates as subject area leaders or curriculum specialists. This is a flexible concentration that may include any of the disciplines in the Department of Education such as mathematics, science, literacy, social studies, early childhood education, and English as a Second Language. While each area of concentration represents a distinct area of scholarship related to education we also recognize the ways that the issues represented by each area are interrelated and the different perspectives can provide new insights and help to identify new areas of scholarship. To this end, students and faculty are encouraged to work and think across these disciplines in creative ways as part of their participation in the program. Program Governance The Ed.D. program will be overseen by the Ed.D. Faculty Advisory Committee. The committee will be composed of a coordinator appointed by the dean of the College of Education Health and Human Services and three College of Education Health and Human Services faculty members elected by the Governing Faculty. The Ed.D. Faculty Advisory Committee will be responsible for establishing admission standards, program requirements, conducting program evaluation, reviewing student applications, approving new courses and approving the formation of dissertation/applied study committees.
5 5 Coursework Core Courses: There are eight core courses that all students must complete as part of the program. The courses include four seminars that address the content focuses of the Ed.D. and four courses addressing research methods.

9 9 Program Stages There are three stages in successfully completing the Ed.D. program at UM-Dearborn: 1) admission, 2) pre-candidacy & 3) candidacy. Admission The objective of the admission process for the Ed.D. is to build a learning community that engages in active scholarship. There are three objectives of the admissions process are to ensure 1) that students admitted to the program are of the highest quality, 2) that there is a good match between students and faculty in terms of interest, and 3) that we promote a learning community within cohorts that is supportive challenging and sustained until program completion. Application Requirements To meet these goals admission decisions are based on a comprehensive review of: 1. A letter or statement of academic interests, professional goals and the applicant s personal/unique potential for contribution to a doctoral cohort. 2. A vitae describing professional and educational experience. 3. Official copies of transcripts from all undergraduate and graduate work. (Candidates must have a minimum of an earned Master s Degree from an accredited institution.) 4. Scores on the analytical, quantitative and verbal portions of the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) completed within the past five years. 5. Three recommendation letters from faculty and/or employers. Reference letters should address the candidates potential and should include: a. Potential for success in doctoral work b. Potential for leadership impact in the field upon completion of the program c. Other characteristics such as: collegiality, ability to complete quality work on time, work ethics/habits, etc. 6. International students must submit scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the Michigan English Language Ability Battery (MELAB) completed within the past five years.
10 10 The Ed.D. Faculty Advisory Committee will review complete applications and invite in selected students for a personal interview. During the interview, the applicant will be expected to demonstrate evidence of personal commitment to earn a doctoral degree, evidence of personal and professional goals that are aligned with the goals of the Ed.D. program, and evidence of professional behavior. Meeting the minimum requirements qualifies an applicant for admissions consideration but does not guarantee admission to the program. As stated above, the Ed.D. Faculty Advisory Committee will determine admission on a competitive basis. Pre-candidacy The pre-candidacy stage of the program includes 1) identifying and selecting an advisor, 2) developing and completing an approved course of study, 3) forming a committee 4) passing the qualifying exams, and 5) successfully defending a dissertation/applied study proposal. (Completing steps 5 require enrollment in EDK 990) Advisor Advisement by faculty is guided by the principle that one of the primary goals of the program is to support the academic and professional development of the students in the Ed.D. program. Faculty advisement should help the student develop a well-planned course of study; provide an opportunity for discussion that informs and develops the dissertation or applied study project; provide expert supervision of the dissertation research or applied study project; and provide guidance and information which will foster professional development and allow for advocacy efforts on behalf of students and their needs. Upon admission to the program students will be assigned a first year advisor in their area of study. The first year advisor may or may not be the academic advisor who supervises the completion of a program. A first year advisor is responsible for explaining program requirements and guiding students in the selection of first semester courses. This advisor will also talk potential scholarship interests and help with the identification of faculty who share similar interests. First year students should make the effort to meet additional faculty as it is expected that by end of the first year of coursework, an academic advisor will be selected.. All academic
11 11 advisors, must be tenure track faculty members of the University of Michigan Dearborn College of Education Health and Human Services. An advisor will also serve as the committee chair and be responsible for assisting in the identification and formation of the committee to supervise the completion of qualifying exams, proposal development and defense, and the final dissertation/applied study project. Committee for Qualifying Exam & Proposal Development and Defense Prior to completion of course work students will need to work with their academic advisors to form their committees; these committees will supervise completion your qualifying exam and the proposal development and defense. The committee must have at least three members: a chair and two faculty members. The chair and at least one of the members must be tenure track faculty members of the UM-Dearborn s College of Education Health and Human Services. The third committee member may be a faculty member from another unit at UM-Dearborn a UM- Dearborn lecturer, or someone from a PK-12 institution, community college, other postsecondary institution. All committee members must have earned doctorates from accredited universities and be approved by the Doctoral Program Faculty Advisory Board and the College of Education Health and Human Services Executive Committee. Committee members will supervise and evaluate all work for 1) the qualifying examination, 2) proposal development and defense, and 3) the completion of the dissertation/applied study. Qualifying Exam The Qualifying Exam is the first step in the process of moving from the pre-candidacy stage to the candidacy stage of the program. The following are required in order to be eligible for the qualifying examination: 1) Completion of all course work, 2) Selection and approval of a dissertation/applied studies chair 3) A formal application for candidacy filed with the CEHHS Office of Student Success. The purpose of the qualifying exam is to demonstrate the breadth and depth of a candidate s understanding of an area of concentration as well as the ability to locate that area
12 12 within the larger domain of education. Students will prepare a paper that demonstrates the depth and breadth of their knowledge of the theoretical issues and empirical research related to their area of concentration and the relationship between their areas of concentration and the broader field of education. The student s Dissertation/Applied Study Committee will establish the goals and guidelines for the paper. Once the question/guidelines have been delivered, the student will have one week to return the completed qualifying exam. The committees will reach consensus in evaluating the qualifying examination as satisfactory, satisfactory with revisions, or unsatisfactory. When the qualifying exam is passed, the student is then eligible to register for EDK 990 to work on proposal development and defense. Exceptions to these procedures will be considered if requested by the student s Dissertation/Applied Study Committee Chair. The Ed.D Faculty Advisory Committee must approve all exceptions. Dissertation/Applied study Proposal development and defense The dissertation/applied study proposal will be developed and defended after the student has successfully completed his/her coursework and the qualifying exam. Typically, the dissertation/applied study committee that reviews the qualifying examination will also supervise the proposal development and defense. Proposal Development The focus at this point of the program will be on the preparation for the dissertation or applied study project. This culminating work may focus on a wide range of topics and/or research methods. Whether the candidate decides to do a dissertation or applied study project, the work will focus on a significant professional problem or issue and have the potential to contribute in a general way or in the context of a particular educational setting to the improvement of the field of education. The proposal must demonstrate a strong scholarly and professional foundation of knowledge and the ability to apply the knowledge to rigorous study of an issue in the field of education. The student must submit the dissertation or applied study proposal for approval following the format and procedures established by the Ed.D. Faculty Advisory Committee. At a
13 13 minimum, the proposal will contain a description of the problem, a review of the relevant literature, a statement of the question/s being investigated and a description of the research methodology or approach taken to address the question/s. In general, the project being described in the proposal will be a culminating project that is intended to inform and/or manage a current problem in an educational setting/institution within. This project will have a unique contextual focus that will be developed with the input from the student s Dissertation/Applied Study Committee. The proposal must also contain the materials that have been or will be submitted to the Institutional Review Board to meet human subjects requirements. The focus and content of a proposal for a dissertation and for an applied study are what distinguish the two from each other. For a dissertation the focus of the proposal will be on the research question and methodology used to develop an understanding of the topic of study. For the applied study the focus will be on the application of theory and research to solve a practical problem or to address a need of the community. To successfully complete the proposal for a dissertation students will submit and orally defend a formal paper of sufficient length, depth, and complexity that it demonstrates their ability to identify a significant and worthwhile problem, select a method or methods of research, employ these methods properly and present the entire effort in writing that is clear and cogent. After the paper has been submitted to the students committee an oral defense of the proposal will be scheduled. To successfully complete the proposal for an applied study project students will submit and orally defend a formal proposal paper of sufficient length and complexity that it demonstrates their ability to identify a significant and worthwhile problem, use appropriate theoretical and empirical study to develop a response to the problem and assess the effectiveness of the response, and present the entire effort in writing that is clear and cogent. After the paper has been submitted to the students committee the student will schedule an oral defense of the proposal with the student s committee. The committee will make a determination about whether or not to approve the student for candidacy based on their evaluation of the paper and the student s performance at the oral defense. The entire Dissertation/Applied Study Committee must be present during the proposal defense and approve the proposal unanimously. The oral presentation will be open to other
14 14 interested faculty and students. Although the examination is usually an oral hearing, the committee may require that a student respond in writing to questions and/or make revisions in their proposals as a condition of approval. If the student is required to resubmit the proposal, the committee will review the revised proposal and communicate the outcome to the student in writing. The student must receive written approval of the proposal by the committee. Candidacy Candidacy is the final phase of the program. A student becomes a candidate for the Ed.D. degree after completing the required coursework and passing the qualifying examination and successfully developing and defending his/her proposal.. At this point, the student will be allowed to pursue the dissertation or applied study work. During the candidacy phase of the program the student must be registered for a minimum of three credit hours per semester until successful completion of the dissertation/applied study. To complete the candidacy phase and earn the EdD degree a written copy of the dissertation or applied study project must be submitted to the student s Dissertation/Applied Study Committee for approval before the oral defense will be scheduled. The members of Dissertation/Applied Study Committee are responsible for submitting their written evaluations to the committee chair prior to the defense. The final oral dissertation/applied Study defense will be open to other faculty, students and the interested public. The Dissertation/Applied Study Committee members must be present at the oral defense. Consensus of the committee is required for approval of the dissertation/applied study and recommendation that the Ed.D. degree be awarded. If the committee requires substantive changes to the written project, the final vote of the committee will be postponed until after the changes are completed. Submission of the Written Dissertation/Project The dissertation/applied study project must be submitted to the CEHHS Doctoral Program Coordinator/s by a specified deadline in the semester in which the degree is conferred. The dissertation/applied study project must conform to U of M Dearborn approved dissertation/applied study manuscript guidelines.
15 15 Academic Policies and Procedures Credit Requirements Criteria for Continuation in the Program Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of a B (5.0 on a 9.0 point scale) or better in the program to be in good academic standing. Students must also earn a C- or better in all required courses. Students whose cumulative GPA falls below a B (5) in any one term will be placed on academic probation and notified of this in writing. Students who do not make satisfactory progress may be removed from the program. Transfer Credit Up to six credit hours from another (non UM) accredited university will be accepted as transfer credits. Students may transfer up to 24 credit hours from the Ann Arbor and Flint campuses. Courses must be at least at the 500 level and the student s academic advisor must approve all courses. Courses may receive transfer credit if: Graduate credits were completed at another accredited institution within five years of application to the Ed.D. program. Graduate credits were completed at another U-M School or College (including Flint and Ann Arbor). The course was not counted toward the completion of another degree program. If a doctoral student enters the proposed program having completed a basic introduction to education research course as part of completing another degree, they may substitute another course for EDK 500 with the written approval of their advisor. A request to alter other core course requirements may be made by the student and their advisor but must be approved by the Ed.D. Faculty Advisory Committee.
16 16 Re-Admission If a student has not taken classes for two or more consecutive semesters, the student s account will be considered as inactive. A student must submit a Re-Admission Form to the College of Education Health and Human Services Office of Student Success to be re-admitted into the program. Academic standing will remain the same from when the student was last actively taking courses. (Ex: If a student were on Academic Probation, he/she would remain on so upon readmission.) Re-Admission Forms can be downloaded at this link: es/forms/readmission_form_.pdf Petitions The petition process is a formal way of permitting a student to request an exception to regular rules governing program completion. Examples of petitioned items would include taking a course that is cross listed with a 400 level course, waiving a program requirement, late dropping from a course, retroactively withdrawing from a semester, or taking a course off-campus. Petitions may be submitted to the Ed.D. Faculty Advisory Committee through the Office of Student Success. Students will be notified of the Committee s response by mail. Students will be limited to three petitions to take a course that is cross listed with a 400 level course during the course of their program. All petitions will be reviewed to ensure that there is a plan to ensure that there is sufficient differentiation between the undergraduate course expectations and the doctoral student course expectations. If a petition is denied, the student has the right to appeal to the Associate Dean in the College of Education Health and Human Services. The appeal will be presented to the Executive Committee for review and a decision.
