Frostburg State University has received final approval to offer a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership, with the first students to begin studies in the fall. This applied doctoral program is FSU’s first, the culmination of more than three years of work by the FSU faculty and administration.
I am thrilled that FSU has been able to take this important step forward. The trend nationally is for comprehensive regional universities to offer applied doctoral degrees. This development puts FSU in the same tier as those other universities nationally.
Required approval for the Ed.D. was received from the FSU Faculty Senate, the University System of Maryland, the Maryland Higher Education Commission and the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, the agency that oversees the University’s accreditation.
I want to personally thank and congratulate Dr. Clarence Golden, Dr. Bill Childs and all of the faculty and staff who assisted with the development of this program—the first of its kind at Frostburg State University. This is truly an historic development for us that will continue to move us along to become a nationally recognized comprehensive university.
