Bay Path’s doctoral program aims to prepare students to transform higher education institutions by creating innovative policies that solve problems of practice. Toward that end, students’ dissertations will be grounded in the “action research” that “
” explains is the foundation for contemporary organization development. Change and Higher Education: A Multidisciplinary Approach
Students will apply behavioral science knowledge and data collection/analysis skills to real organizational problems through this iterative process:
1. Identify a problem;
2. Plan a change process;
3. Take action;
4. Evaluate, then repeat.
Thus, Bay Path’s students will learn how the outcomes of action research can lead to new planning or new objectives.
