The mission of the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies is to prepare entry-level and executive-level administrators and faculty for schools and colleges, and to prepare policy scholars to serve in these organizations and in state, regional, and national policy agencies associated with the educational and human service enterprise. The graduate degree programs in the department are designed to enrich the knowledge, skills and values requisite to effective leadership in educational practice settings. The department views leaders as stewards and servants of organizations; designers of the social and cultural climate in which we do our work; teachers who facilitate human growth and development; change agents who continually examine the effectiveness of their organizations; and conceptual provocateurs who challenge ideas and assumptions on which practice and policy are built.

Financial Assistance
The department offers a variety of scholarship and financial assistance opportunities and graduate assistantships for qualified students. For application forms visit the departmental website or contact our department office.

EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION MAJOR

Additionally, it prepares policy scholars to serve in state, regional, and national policy and human services agencies. The graduate degree programs are designed to enrich the knowledge, skills and values requisite to effective leadership in educational practice settings. The graduate programs focus on the preparation and development of administrative and instructional leaders who will serve in the diverse settings of schools and colleges, and educational units of government. Specialized coursework leading to the urban education certificate is available in the area of urban administration.
