The Department of Administrative Leadership develops individuals for positions of leadership in educational arenas. As an educational leader, you will have the skills to nurture leadership among others in a wide range of elementary, secondary, and post secondary programs, as well as in business and industry.
We have three areas of study: Adult Education, which focuses on post-secondary adult and continuing education leadership, the Educational Administration area, which focuses on elementary and secondary educational administration, and the Higher Education Administration program, which focuses on administration at higher education organizations.
The Department of Administrative Leadership contributes to the development of competent, inquiring educational leaders, particularly for service in urban metropolitan areas. These leaders require advanced preparation to meet the broad spectrum of learning needs that exist in today's dynamic and complex society.
