The purpose of the Ed.D. in Leadership is to provide leaders with authentic experiences, appropriate knowledge and skills, and opportunities for reflection that will enable them to succeed in organizational leadership positions. Three analytic lenses - equity, accountability and learning environments - will guide learning activities and enable students from varying backgrounds to consider learning through common perspectives.
Students will examine cases built around enduring questions in the field and examine these questions through three lenses: learning, equity and accountability. Questions will be explored through contrasting evidence from economic, systems, legal, human relations and political data and perspectives. The program content and assessments will correlate to common curriculum elements across perspectives.
