The mission of the Department of Educational Leadership is to prepare visionary scholars and leaders who promote equity, inclusiveness, and justice across a variety of spheres.
We achieve this through an interdisciplinary integration of theory, research, and practice.
Students engage in coursework, activities and projects that promote a deeper understanding for providing equitable educational opportunities for inclusive communities.
Intensive study of general, PreK-12, and higher education leadership policy and practice offers students opportunities to examine complex issues across a variety of contexts.
Students work alongside dedicated, diverse, and internationally-recognized faculty that foster learning environments centered on intellectual integrity and advocacy.
Graduates enact these key values by leading learning environments that are equitable and safe, bringing evidenced-informed perspectives to their work as both scholars and practitioners, and by empowering and building teams they lead.
The Department of Educational Leadership offers a variety of graduate degree and endorsement programs that fit many career and professional development goals."
