The Department of Educational Leadership’s Ed.D. program engages students in applied inquiry about a problem inherent in leadership, teaching, or school reform.  Students are encouraged to examine topics that inform equity of educational opportunity. Each student will complete a capstone project that involves framing their problem of practice, engaging in empirical inquiry on the topic, and developing a set of recommendations that will contribute to the field on the issue.

Ed.D. Program Mission Statement:

This program aims to provide professional educational leaders with the essential habits of mind and sophisticated reasoning skills necessary for leading systemic school improvement. A secondary goal is to develop a cadre of leaders who engage their profession in pursuing socially just schools.
