Program Description:

The Warner School's Educational Leadership programs in Administration and Higher Education share a singular goal: to instill in students a passion to take the initiative and the skills to inspire and carry out change in America's schools, colleges, and universities. As advocates for thoughtful leadership, Warner graduates understand how to motivate others, make decisions, manage people and processes, and enable individuals to reach their highest potential. The School Administration programs prepare students to be skilled, knowledgeable, and creative leaders in K-12 schools and school districts. The Higher Education programs prepare thoughtful leaders and researchers, with a comprehensive understanding of the institutional and cultural world of higher education and the intellectual skills to approach the challenges of academic life with creativity and a deep appreciation of the fundamental purposes and ideals of higher education. The Educational Policy doctoral program offers an interdisciplinary course of study, and focuses on educational policy studies and the implications of new research findings and court decisions. Specialty Areas in Educational Leadership are: School Administration, Higher Education, and Educational Policy and Theory.
