The pleasure of becoming an educated person is the enormous interest it adds to life. To be able to be caught up into the world of thought— that is to be educated. —Edith Hamilton


The mission of the Department is to create, integrate, exchange and apply knowledge about leadership, learning and organizational performance to advance educational quality and opportunity.

The Department of Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis offers the M.S. degree, the Ph.D. degree, and a Specialist Certificate in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis. All three of these degrees are intended to increase professional knowledge and skills essential for educational leadership, and to prepare persons for leadership positions at all levels of education: preschool, elementary, secondary, special education, vocational and technical schools, and colleges and universities, both public and private.
