Dear Waldorf Colleagues, Alums, and Friends,


We are delighted to announce that Antioch University has launched an accredited doctoral program for educators!  Thanks to recent work with alums, school responses and many expressions of personal interest, Antioch has agreed to inaugurate a Waldorf cohort within this EdD program in 2021.  Here are a few features:


Liz Beaven, EdD, currently Board President of the Alliance for Waldorf Public Education

Torin Finser, PhD, Director of Waldorf Programs (AUNE) and President of CfA’s Board of Trustees

Douglas Gerwin, PhD, Executive Director of CfA and Chair of its high school training program

Melanie Reiser, PhD, AWSNA’s Executive Director for Membership

Linda Williams, PhD, former college professor and now class teacher at the Detroit Waldorf School



In order to apply, contact Jonathan Eskridge, Associate Director of the EdD Program (jeskridge@antioch.edu).   


On behalf of us all at Antioch, we wish you good health and send our best wishes for the months ahead.


Torin M. Finser
