Educational Administration

Leadership in education

The Department of Educational Administration is recognized as providing graduate programs of distinction to scholars and personnel interested in becoming leaders in college, university, and K-12 public school settings. We train a diverse body of change-makers who go on to serve as superintendents, principals, policymakers, professors, deans, and administrators.

The Program in Higher Education Leadership (PHEL) prepares future leaders in college and university administration, scholars, and teachers who can pass on knowledge of the past and equip students with the ability to work with an ever-changing higher education environment.

The Public School Executive Leadership (PSEL) program is committed, in all of its program area concentrations, to leadership that facilitates the development of schools that create the conditions for academic high performance for literally all children from pre-k to 12th grade.
