I have been teaching at Northcentral University for nearly 7 years. When I first began, I had a partner, a toddler, an infant, and a yellow lab named Parker. As I met with my students on the phone or through video conferencing, I was struck by the wonderful diversity of people who were showing up to study marriage and family therapy with the purpose of bringing healing to others and to themselves. My students inspire me.
Previous education and degrees earned: Bachelor’s and Master’s
My previous degrees were a BA in Political Science/Public Administration from the University of Texas at San Antonio, followed by a Master of Business Administration from Webster University. I also completed various military schools while serving in the U.S. Army.
Why did you choose to go back to school and pursue your doctorate degree?
David Berner, who recently completed his Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership at Northcentral University took a moment to talk with us about his journey to earning his EdD. Dr. Berner was only two courses away from completing his doctorate when his previous university, Argosy, suddenly closed its doors, bringing his journey to a screeching halt. That is, until he found Northcentral University. We took a moment with Dr. Berner to talk about his journey to earning his EdD:
In August, NCU traveled to Colombia, South America for an Edu-Tourism trip supported by Dr. Erika Prager, Director of Assessment in the School of Education. From learning about professional ethics in the Colombian justice system to visiting a local market in the city of Cali, the group of NCU students and alumni were immersed in the culture of the country from day one.
Northcentral University is pleased to announce the recipients of our August Lead The Way Scholarship. All recipients are receiving a full-tuition scholarship. Congratulations to all!
