Leadership in Education
The Department of Educational Leadership and Policy has a legacy of excellence in training scholars, practitioners, and educational leaders for PK-12 public schools, higher education, and the P-16 policy arena. We prepare a diverse cadre of change-makers who go on to serve as superintendents, school principals, professors, researchers, and student affairs professionals. Our award-winning faculty, nationally recognized graduate programs, and highly regarded research centers focus on educational leadership and policy through an equity and social justice lens.
Our department consists of two program areas that offer master’s and doctoral degree concentrations in specific fields: the Program in Higher Education Leadership and the Public School Executive Leadership Program.
