The mission of the Department of Educational Leadership is to prepare visionary scholars and leaders who promote equity, inclusiveness and justice across a variety of spheres.

The department achieves this mission through an interdisciplinary integration of theory, research and practice. Students engage in course work, activities and projects that promote a deeper understanding for providing equitable educational opportunities for inclusive communities.

Intensive study of general, PreK-12 and higher education leadership policy and practice offers students opportunities to examine complex issues across a variety of contexts. Students work alongside dedicated, diverse and internationally recognized faculty that foster learning environments centered on intellectual integrity and advocacy.
