Educational Leadership, Doctor of Education

We designed our EdD program for K-12 and community college-higher education leaders who are motivated to advance education through new competencies, strategies, communications, collaborations, advocacy, and professionalism.

This doctorate for practicing professionals is a leadership development program that integrates educational and professional foundations, leadership principles, professional ethics, and development of a research agenda that evolves from issue-focused and problem-based experiences and goals.
Through our customized program, you’ll prepare to lead with integrity, in an ethical and responsive manner, and to demonstrate skills, knowledge, and dispositions that enhance openness to change, ongoing inquiry, relationship empowerment, leadership self-reflection, and empathic perspectives. You’ll learn to understand and practice leadership within diverse fluid contexts, including cultural, social, political, environmental, technological, and global borders.

This program is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
