Educational Leadership

The Educational Leadership Program prepares...

  • Professionals with high levels of legal literacy and policy acumen who are committed to the ideals of inclusive and equitable education for all.
  • Leaders who prioritize continuous improvement at the school, district, state, and policy level.
  • Innovators who design powerful and equitable teaching and learning for every student.
  • Scholars are who are inquiry-minded and evidence-oriented in their practice, thinking, and stance to persistent educational problems.
  • Administrators who are responsible, efficient, and strategic in their stewardship of schools and districts.
  • Colleagues who are confident, ethical, collaborative, compassionate, healthy, and balanced.

As an experienced teacher you understand the unique challenges that students and schools face.

With a graduate degree in educational leadership, you can prepare to take on leadership roles that will build stronger organizations to better serve students, teachers, and staff. This program is tailored to the diverse needs of the education community as well as your individual needs.

Our degrees also prepare you for licensing as a principal, superintendent, or director of exceptional needs.

Our curriculum was developed in partnership with schools and districts to address the specific challenges the next generation of education leaders will face and will deepen your leadership capacities, enhance your learning and professional growth, and challenge you to think critically about the challenges facing education in contemporary times.

The Educational Leadership Program also offers a special track in education law, as well as a MS in Strategic Management from the Kelley School of Business and a minor in Educational Policy for students at the Maurer School of Law.
