Program Statement

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.
