Alverno College will host its annual Community Conference virtually on Friday, April 23 as part of the College’s Teach and Learn Weekend. The theme of this year’s conference is “Reaching for Change: Promoting Equity,” and the goal is to explore how we can promote change through equity, diversity and inclusion. Deanna Singh, author, educator, motivational speaker and champion for marginalized communities will serve as the keynote speaker for the event. Her presentation on the Power of Inclusion will kick off the event.
The annual day of learning, which provides an opportunity for the extended Alverno community to share research, new initiatives and best practices, includes workshops, discussions and creative activities. Eighteen breakout sessions will be offered on a variety of topics including LGBTQ+ healthcare equity, cultivating female leaders, racial equity, disability justice, and the impact of COVID on marginal communities.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to complete the online EdD?
The EdD takes a total of six semesters to complete, or approximately 24 months. Students who choose the K-12 Leadership concentration may take somewhat longer if they decide to pursue additional coursework to prepare for superintendent eligibility.
Students who enter on the ABD completion track or the EdS completion track may take slightly less time to complete their degree.
Can I work while I earn my EdD? Will I have to travel often?
The online EdD is designed to accommodate full-time work schedules. Coursework is almost completely online, with two residencies of one weekend each included in the program.
What can I do after graduation?
Graduates of the EdD program can pursue advanced teaching or leadership roles in a wide range of industries—not just education. While most graduates will opt to serve in K-12 schools or districts or higher education institutions after earning the EdD, other options include government agencies, education publishing or educational technology companies, corporate training and retention, and more.
Is financial aid available?
Financial aid is available to those who apply and qualify. Graduate students can qualify for federal loans. We suggest that all students begin the Free Application for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA) as soon as they apply. Alverno’s FAFSA code is 003832.
