Our Vision and Mission
Educational Leadership and Policy Studies will be nationally recognized for graduating outstanding, innovative and courageous leaders and producing significant educational research that influences policy and practice.
The department views leaders as stewards and servants of organizations, designers of the social and cultural climate in which they work, teachers who facilitate and encourage human growth and development, change agents who continually examine the purpose and performance of their organizations, and conceptual provocateurs who challenge ideas and assumptions on which policy and practice are built.
