Statewide Cooperative EdD Program E-NEWSLETTER Department of Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis University of Missouri- Columbia Volume 4, No. 2 April 2009 INSIDE Students, Alumni, and Faculty Awards & Recognitions Faculty Spotlights and Focus EdD Program 2009 - 2010 Calendar of Events Doctoral Candidate Graduation Deadlines for 2009 Alumni Spotlight Site Focus April 23, 2009 Greetings from Columbia! Because this is my first chance to pen an opening to the EdD Program’s E-Newsletter I dutifully went back and reviewed the kinds of things that were discussed in the past. No surprise there….Change! Well change continues to be the watchword of the day bringing challenges, but also opportunities to renew and grow as a department and a program. As Dr. Donaldson mentioned in the last newsletter, ELPA and the EdD program saw the retirements of key faculty recently. This summer our ELPA colleague Dr. Barbara Townsend will retire. I know I speak for everyone when I say that her contributions to the EdD program and our department will be missed in more ways than we can mention. As the new ELPA Department Chair I have spent considerable time working with my colleagues to navigate these uncertain economic times in ways that ensure that we continue to serve our students well and provide them with high quality programs that contribute to their professional success. I can say with confidence that our programs are stronger than ever. We really do work smarter and harder! Because of the strength of our programs (evidenced by the caliber of our students), we were granted permission by the College and University to conduct two faculty searches - —a rare feat these days. These searches are on-going. One is a tenure track position in Educational Leadership, and the other is a clinical position that will assist us in implementing the Hook Center mission and teaching in our PK-12 leadership preparation programs (click on Faculty Openings on the ELPA website if you’re curious). Faculty continue to make MU a vibrant place to work. Drs. Nguyen and Maxcy have worked tirelessly to craft an innovative leadership development program that would help the government of Vietnam to educate the next generation of educational leaders in that country. While on the distant horizon, the fruits of their labor are beginning to come into focus. Drs. Maher, Donaldson, Messner, MacGregor, and Watson delivered the EdD’s first Dissertation Boot Camp to help jump start students on their dissertation work. By all accounts the bootcamp was a great success and we’ll most likely do it again sometime soon. Of course, the big news was the selection of Cohort 7 students earlier this spring. With the help of EdD faculty from around the state (and many of our non- EdD colleagues who were cajoled into pitching in), we screened 112 students and 77 students began their first session on April 25. Particular thanks go to ELPA staff Jude Sommerjones and Sheila Guice for their support during this selection process. Well, that is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what’s going on around ELPA and the EdD. As always please stay in touch and let us know where you are and how you’re doing. You ARE the EdD program, and we thank you for making us look good! Jay Scribner Director 1
