Established in fall 2003, the Department of Educational Leadership provides Master's programs in educational administration (EdAd), and student affairs administration in higher education (SAA), and continuing and college education (CCE). The department is also home to the ever-growing field of instructional technology (IT). Candidates for degrees or certification in all these fields share a commitment to advancing their knowledge and skills to better serve their students and their communities.
The Department of Educational Leadership cultivates quality educational leaders for the future by providing a diverse array of undergraduate and graduate degrees and professional programs. Educational transformation requires leaders who can envision a better future and improved practices, and who have leadership qualities and educational skills to facilitate and sustain meaningful learning and change. We collaboratively prepare and empower these highly skilled and knowledgeable leaders to teach adults or children, train adults in the public and private sector, and/or administer superior educational programs. Up-to-date curriculum and teaching practices are student-centered and standards driven with an emphasis on the integration of theory and practice.
