Dear CPCC Faculty and Staff,


A few years ago, we held a preliminary meeting to determine if
individuals were interested in pursuing a doctoral program through
UNC-Charlotte. We had about 100 individuals attend that meeting and a
cohort of doctoral students began in the summer of 2003. Since that
time, the curriculum has been revised and a program specialization in
Community has been designated. UNCC would now like to have a second
informational meeting for potential doctoral students from CPCC and
other local community colleges. An overview of the program will be
provided in a meeting at CPCC in the Central High Building, Room 301 on
October 25, 2004, from 4:00- 5:30pm.


The Department of Educational Leadership at UNC-Charlotte is now
accepting applications for students interested in the new Ed.D. program
with a Community specialization. This program emphasizes leadership in
the areas of curriculum development and instructional supervision in
non-public school settings. It is designed for those interested in
careers as senior level administrators in educational organizations such
as community colleges or for those whose professional responsibilities
relate to the supervision of instruction in other contexts. To ensure
the effectiveness and competence of individuals in such positions,
coursework within the program also reflects the need for proficiency in
program design and research. 


UNCC is actively encouraging people who are in the community college
setting to consider this opportunity since we have developed a strong
emphasis in this area. They currently have twelve students already
enrolled in this new program, most of whom are currently employed full
and part-time in community colleges.  


Classes are held in the community college setting when possible and in
the evenings to accommodate busy schedules. More information is on the
departmental website (http://education.uncc.edu/eart). Applications can
be obtained from the graduate school and are due by MARCH 1, 2005, for
admission. Coursework begins in July 2005. 


For questions about the UNCC program, feel free to contact Dr. Grace
Mitchell at 704. 687.3577. For questions about the October 25 meeting,
contact Terri Manning at CPCC at 704.330.6592.
