Department of Educational Leadership

Our Mission

The Department of Educational Leadership in the Watson College of Education is a diverse and dynamic group of educators and scholars committed to improving leadership at all levels of education. Through our teaching, scholarship, and service, we facilitate understanding, research, and implementation of practices that promote social justice, global perspectives, creativity and innovation, and capacity building—practices we believe are essential to educational leadership.

We enact our commitment by: 1) providing well-designed programs in educational administration, curriculum and instruction, higher education, and leadership studies; 2) making scholarly contributions to education practice, policy, and theory; and 3) engaging in service that benefits our local, national, and international communities of practitioners and scholars.
