Richard Van Doel PhD Candidate

Richard Van DoelI am very happy to announce that I have been promoted to PhD Candidate! At Indiana Wesleyan University to be promoted to a PhD Candidate means that I have satisfactorily completed all course work and the comprehensive oral examinations. Written the proposal, which consists of the first three chapters of my dissertation, and satisfactorily completed the dissertation proposal seminar.

The proposal seminar is conducted in a public forum, approximately 2 hours in length and consists of a 20-minute presentation of the proposal followed by questions from the dissertation committee, faculty members, and students. Being promoted to a PhD Candidate means that I can obtain IRB approval for my study and then commence with data collection.
It has been 4 years of work to get to this point, as I started my PhD journey in July 2011.

Originally, the program was an EdD, Doctorate in Education, however the program was accepted by the Higher Learning Commissioning as a PhD program starting in July 2014. This added two additional courses and required an additional mini-comprehensive examination to cover the additional course work. My dissertation proposal has been submitted to IWU’s Institutional Review Board for approval and once this is obtained, the next step is to commence data collection, data analysis in chapter 4 and interpretation of the findings in chapter 5. Once written the final step will be completion of the dissertation defense and graduation.
