William R. Levacy Receives
Doctorate in Education

On Oct 17, 2012, American College of Vedic Astrology™ (ACVA) president, William R. Levacy received his Ph.D. in Education with Distinction from Capella University. Dr. Levacy’s doctoral specialization is in Human Performance Improvement (HPI). HPI emphasizes that we must look at performance within the context of a system and in regards to all of the interdependent factors that affect that performance. HPI also recognizes that it is necessary to look at the factors that impact the results that people produce. In HPI people are at the heart of any analysis. Dr. Levacy tells us that human performance improvement is a goal of Jyotisha. The astrologer analyzes the chart to determine the best way a person can perform in time, with the hopes of averting danger and maximizing health and happiness.

Dr. Levacy’s dissertation focused on culture as a system. The aim of the research was to find out how cultural diversity impacted performance of multicultural teams, with an emphasis on India and the U.S. The American College of Vedic Astrology™ (ACVA) would like to congratulate Dr. Levacy on his academic achievement. We would also like to thank Dr. Levacy for his ongoing efforts to further academic and educational excellence within the field of Jyotisha and within goals and objectives of the American College of Vedic Astrology™ (ACVA).
