1 Date: March 4, 2015 To: Brad Seebach, Chair Faculty Senate From: Jodie Rindt, Ph. D. Department Chair, Student Affairs Administration Chris Bakkum, Ph. D., Ed. D. Program Lead Re: Doctorate of Education (Ed. D.) in Student Affairs Administration and Leadership Request for Implementation Attached you will find the Request of Implementation of an Ed. D. in Student Affairs Administration and Leadership from the Department of Student Affairs Administration in the College of Liberal Studies. The Request for Authorization to Plan this degree was approved by Faculty Senate last April. At this time, we are asking for Approval to Implement the Ed. D. There have been some changes in the program since it was approved by Faculty Senate last spring, most notably, the requirement by UW System to collaborate with 3 other campuses to share 6 required credits (2 courses) and to consider allowing students from one partner institution to transfer credit from another partner institution for use as electives. On the second page of this memo, you will find the details on how this collaboration will work. Each campus would be granted individual authorization for the Ed. D. We have also included a draft of the Memorandum of Understanding, as requested by the Academic Planning Committee process. The College of Liberal Studies Academic Oversight Committee, the Faculty Senate Academic Planning Committee, and the Faculty Senate Graduate Curriculum Committee have all approved this proposal. As you know, the Department of Student Affairs Administration has been working on the development of this degree for over three years now so we are delighted that it is moving forward. We hope you and the members of the Faculty Senate will agree that an applied doctorate degree in Student Affairs Administration and Leadership would be an exciting addition to the academic program array here at UW-La Crosse. If approved, the Ed. D. in Student Affairs Administration and Leadership would be the only such degree in the UW System. Thank you for considering this request. We appreciate your willingness to help us move the request through the governance approval process this semester in a way that will allow us to be in a position to have the proposal considered by the Board of Regents at the June meeting. We look forward to talking with you about the proposal!

2 UW System Doctorate of Education (Ed. D.) Proposal: A Model for Delivering Four Independent Applied Doctoral Programs Collaboratively Overview UW-La Crosse, UW-Green Bay, UW-Oshkosh and UW-Stevens Point each have individual strengths in the field of Education that together will offer a unique array of applied doctoral programs to multiple state and national audiences. Working together, these programs have partnered to ensure the efficient use of resources, share program strengths and faculty expertise, ensure student choice, and decrease competition among programs. Under this partnership, each of the four programs proposed will administer their own program, remain unique in focus, audience, and how their course array is delivered; however, all four of the programs will share two common online courses and an array of elective choices that allow students enrolled at any one institution to easily pursue coursework and emphases from a partner institution. Table 1: Degree Emphasis by University UNIVERSITY FOCUS AUDIENCE DELIVERY FORMAT UW-La Crosse Higher Ed, Student Affairs National Online Administration/Leadership UW-Green Bay First Nations Local Face-to-Face UW-Oshkosh DPI Principal/ Superintendent Local Face-to-Face UW-Stevens Point Sustainability, K-12 National, Local Hybrid An Innovative Approach The approach described herein is innovative in that it (1) creates a network of UW-Universities who will deliver applied degrees at the doctoral level and produce experts trained to meet future workforce demands; (2) utilizes campus strengths of each partner institution (see table 1); (3) creates efficiencies and collaboration through shared required and elective coursework; (4) encourages student choice by making elective courses and emphasis areas available and easily transferable, and (5) invites involvement from other UW-institutions outside of the collaborating partners to offer elective courses. Never before has a collaborative effort at this level existed in UW-System. Further, each of the four collaborating universities have agreed to establish consistent tuition rates, and meet on a semi-annual basis to discuss the ongoing collaboration and curricular array. These mechanisms will ensure a collaborative approach and a focus on meeting student needs. Shared Courses (6 credits) In 2014, the Carnegie Project on the Educational Doctorate (CPED) created working principles for universities to consider when developing an Ed. D. The working principles infer that Educational doctorates should have specific curricular content within the offered degree program. Following these recommendations, UW-Stevens Point, UW-La Crosse, UW-Oshkosh and UW-Green Bay agreed to collaborate and develop two courses, one in Educational Leadership and the second in Equity/Social Justice that all students in the proposed doctoral programs would receive during the foundation coursework. These courses will be taught collaboratively, online. The partners will share course development, delivery, and instructional costs. This arrangement will save resources and avoid the duplication of common instructional content. This type of sharing between each unique degree program also provides students with an opportunity to broaden their perspectives and creates

3 interdisciplinary dialogue around these critical topics. * For more information on the Carnegie Project see: Shared Electives A second part of the collaboration between Ed. D. partners is the concept of shared elective courses. Each partner institution has agreed to contribute 2-4 courses (6-12 credits) for other partners to use as shared electives toward the degree, focusing on individual specialty strands. These shared electives and strands will be intentionally designed for use by doctoral students at all partner campuses within their Ed. D. program of study. The intention of the shared electives is to extend the expertise of one campus to students at another campus. In addition, this sharing of courses and students also allows for multiple disciplinary perspectives to be heard and explored by the students in these shared courses, since the students will all be from different campuses and different Ed. D. programs. Some of the shared courses will be packaged into specialty emphases that can be noted on the student s transcript. For example, the Student Affairs Administration Department at UW-La Crosse may offer a 9- credit emphasis in Student Affairs for use by students in the First Nations Education program at UW- Green Bay for those students interested in working in Tribal Colleges. In that case, the student s transcript would reflect completion of the Ed. D. in First Nations with an emphasis in Student Affairs. This opportunity would not be available to Green Bay students without the collaboration of the Ed. D. partners. Shared courses taken by students will be approved and articulated by each campus to make the transfer of these credits seamless. Students will be able to choose from a pool of shared courses, which will help them to shape the curriculum in ways that closely address their individual professional goals. Students will work closely with their Ed. D. advisors to identify appropriate shared courses. Shared courses will be priced by each campus and each campus may identify as many shared courses as they like but must contribute at least two. This sharing of faculty expertise also saves resources by enrolling more students in existing courses on each campus. Summary Separately, UW-La Crosse, UW-Green Bay, UW-Oshkosh and UW-Stevens Point have a strong case for offering four independent applied doctoral programs that are unique in scope and audience. Working together, through common coursework, shared elective content, common tuition pricing and on-going collaboration, these doctoral programs are made stronger for their students, institutions and for the UW-system.

4 Memorandum of Understanding for Interdisciplinary Programs UW System Collaborative Ed. D. (This is still in draft form and has yet to be approved by the UW Ed. D. Steering Committee) Proposed Spring 2015 UW-La Crosse, UW-Green Bay, UW-Oshkosh and UW-Stevens Point each have individual strengths in the field of Education that together will offer a unique array of applied doctoral programs to multiple state and national audiences. Working together, these programs have partnered to ensure the efficient use of resources, to share program strengths and faculty expertise, to ensure student choice, and to decrease competition among programs. Under this partnership, each of the four programs proposed will be granted individual authorization for an Ed. D. and will administer their own program which will remain unique in focus, audience, and how their course array is delivered. However, all four of the programs will share two common online core courses and an array of elective choices that allow students enrolled at any one institution to easily pursue coursework and emphases from a partner institution. This Memorandum of Understanding will articulate the important aspects of this collaboration as follows: 1. Main point of contact for each campus/department a. UW-Green Bay Dr. Lisa Poupart b. UW-La Crosse Dr. Chris Bakkum c. UW-Oshkosh Dr. Marguerite Penick-Parks d. UW-Stevens Point Dr. Pam Bork e. Release time or appointment will be determined by each campus f. The UW-Ed. D. Steering Committee, comprised of one or two individual from each partner institution, will be responsible for coordinating the assessment of each program in tandem with the main contacts at each campus. 2. Number of doctoral students expected to be served by each program a. UW-Green Bay 10 new students each year b. UW-La Crosse 12 new students each year c. UW-Oshkosh 15 new students each year d. UW-Stevens Point 15 new students each year 3. Intended offering pattern of required and elective shared courses: a. Two required shared core courses: Leadership will be offered every fall; Equity/Diversity will be offered every spring. Both courses will always be offered online. b. Elective shared courses: A minimum of 6 elective credits will be offered by each partner institution each year in a format easily accessible by distance learner. 4. Workload for teaching any interdisciplinary courses: Two, 3-credit core courses will be required by all students in the partner program degrees. These courses may be taught by one partner instructor alone or may be team-taught by two or more partner instructors.

5 Students will enroll for the core courses at the home institution. Workload credit will follow the instructor (s) teaching the course. Students will enroll for required shared core courses through the home institution. 5. Shared credits a. Required core courses (2): partner campuses collaboratively develop and teach these courses. The UW Ed. D. Steering Committee will provide oversight and assessment of required core courses. b. Elective shared courses: partner campuses agree to open shared courses to partner institution students. Partner campuses agree to transfer shared elective courses and apply those courses to the student s Ed. D. program. Each partner campus will commit to providing a minimum of 6 elective credits. Shared elective courses may be packaged by an institution to provide an emphasis area that can be noted on the students transcript as part of the completion of the Ed. D. program. 6. Shared equipment and materials: Partners may share teaching materials used in the two shared core courses. No other sharing of equipment or materials will be necessary. 7. Identify the process by which this MOU would be revised: The UW Ed. D. Steering Committee would be responsible for bringing forward any changes to the MOU. All partner campuses would need to agree to the changes before the MOU is amended.
