Community members interested in learning how to earn a doctor of education degree in the Colorado Mountain College service area are invited to a free information session at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 7 at five different CMC locations.
The meeting will be held face-to-face at the college’s Glenwood Center, 1402 Blake Ave. in Glenwood Springs, or via interactive video at CMC campuses and locations in Edwards (150 Miller Ranch Road), Steamboat Springs (1275 Crawford Ave.), Dillon (333 Fiedler Ave.) and Leadville (901 S. Highway 24).
The degree is being offered through Nova Southeastern University’s Abraham S. Fischler College of Education, in partnership with CMC and Rural Community College Alliance. If enough students sign up, the program could start as soon as spring 2016.
The Doctor of Education program is a blended program for students interested in public school administration, higher education administration, adult education or organizational leadership. Students in the program learn what it means to be an administrator, leader or teacher in a rural community. This three-year program will open doctoral degrees to employees in public schools, higher education and governmental agencies in Colorado’s rural mountain communities.
