Bice, Garry R.
The doctoral program in vocational-technical education at the University of Tennessee began in 1971. Among the 22 students were 18 recipients of Education Professions Development Act (EPDA) fellowships. The goal of the program is to prepare a cadre of educational leaders and administrators who can effectively contribute to improving the quality of leadership in vocational education in Tennessee and the nation. The two-year full-time program consists of work in the professional education core, an area of concentration, a cognate field, an area of research techniques, and a dissertation. A two-phase internship program augments the basic program and is required of all EPDA awardees. An advisory committee for the EPDA program was formed during the second year of operation whose primary responsibility was the completion of an evaluation of the EPDA program at the University of Tennessee. By the end of the second year of the program, all 18 of the original awardees had completed their formal coursework, had passed preliminary doctoral examinations, and 17 had completed the internship requirements. Included in the appendixes are the names of those on the advisory committee, its tasks, its constitution, and its evaluation report. (SC)
