Doctoral student earns dissertation award with aid of Northwest advisor

Stephen Himes, a student in Northwest Missouri State University’s joint doctorate program is the recipient of the 2013 Dan H. Cockrell EdD Dissertation of the Year Award. Dr. Carole Edmonds, associate professor in Northwest’s Department of Professional Education, is his academic advisor.

Himes will receive the award for his dissertation, titled “The Race-Based School Assignment Policy Response to Parents Involved V. Seattle Schools by 125 Districts From the Civil Rights Commission’s 1987 Meta Study on the Effects of Desegregation,” during a July 23 gala on the University of Missouri-Columbia campus.

“Dr. Himes was an outstanding doctoral student,” Edmonds said. “He was diligent, self-motivated and resourceful. He’s a great role model for our doctoral program.”

The joint doctoral program with the University of Missouri-Columbia is delivered cooperatively by four other partner institutions: University of Missouri, Southeast Missouri State University, University of Central Missouri and Missouri State University. The regional delivery system provides flexibility to educators who work full-time and access to faculty who collaborate as program instructors.
