Look Inside

Take a quick look at the home of the Helen DeVos College of Education: the facility housing our dynamic and close-knit learning community.


The Educational Doctorate in Professional Practice prepares the candidate to bring both theory and praxis into their specific area of educational practice. This program was developed by the faculty of the Helen DeVos College of Education along with Local Education Agency (LEA) partners to give candidates the skills and dispositions to impact education administration, policy, and instruction. This includes understanding the nature of change, the relational aspects of administration, and the leading of an organization that is constantly in flux. Analytical data skills and current assessment techniques are foundational to the degree.
