The goals of the Department of Educational Leadership are to

  1. Provide graduate programs of study in which students pursue advanced degrees in P-12 educational leadership, student affairs administration and leadership, and community college teaching and leadership.

  3. Provide rigorous, relevant, and empirically supported instruction which engages students in acquiring knowledge and in solving problems critically, analytically, and ethically.
  4. Conduct research that is significant, driven by theory, and methodologically rigorous, in order that students and faculty participate as active consumers and producers of knowledge.
