Leadership—especially in education—must be an intellectual, creative, and moral practice. Using improvement science as a primary approach, the Ed.D. curriculum focuses on preparing social-justice-minded educational leaders to solve problems and design solutions that benefit schools and student learning.
Through interactive coursework and collaborative discussions, students learn to advocate for educational policy reform, improve schools using research and improvement science, and act as change agents who engage with and support the transformation of schools, districts, and communities.
