Thank you for your interest in the New England College Graduate Programs.

Doctorate of Education Campus Information Sessions

Interested in a Doctorate of Education but never had the time to make that commitment? We are hosting Information Sessions throughout the academic year for you to learn more about our Doctoral program.

We invite you to spend a Saturday at New England College to explore the many opportunities that the Doctorate of Education has to offer! Meet our Program Director, Gavin Henning, professors in the program, as well as our current doctoral students!

The time you spend with us will entail learning more about the two different concentrations that we offer, participating in live classroom sessions, as well as enjoying a complimentary buffet lunch with staff and current doctoral students. This will offer many opportunities for you to learn more about the Doctorate of Education program from the perspective of students and professors alike.

EdD Information Sessions

If you are interested in learning more about the program, contact Damaris Gibaldi at 603.428.2906 or email to set up an individualized information session with Gavin Henning, Professor of Higher Education.

Campus Weekday Tours

Tour the campus with our graduate admission counselor for the doctoral program, Christina Colantuoni , to get an overview of the program, meet with a financial aid counselor, and depending on availability, chat with the program director, Gavin Henning.

Individual campus visits are a great way to learn more about NEC. Campus tours are offered Monday through Friday at 10:30 am and 2:00 p.m. when classes are in session. During holiday breaks, and over the summer months, weekday tours are offered at 2:00 p.m. only. Please call, or email, Moira Louca to schedule an appointment today!


The Doctorate of Education program is designed to prepare educators to take on leadership roles in improving educational systems and advancing student learning and success.
The low residency, three-year cohort-based structure of the program is ideal for working professionals, and the focus on applied research allows participants to have an immediate impact on the quality of education in their work environments.
The Pre K-12 Leadership and Higher Education Administration concentrations allow participants to develop expertise in specific settings and issues.


Unlike other doctorate programs, the dissertation process begins the first year enabling you to complete your coursework AND your dissertation in three years.
The rigor of this accelerated format is balanced with a strong cohort model along with supportive and accessible faculty.
