Doctorate in Educational Leadership (EdD)

Join us in our bold vision for the future

At the Kalmanovitz School of Education, we believe that education can transform lives and make a positive impact on our future and in our communities — particularly those that are underserved. Our curriculum prepares leaders who understand the causes of inequities within society and how these affect our communities, including students, parents and teachers.

Our Vision

  • Prepare leaders who stimulate the growth and development of individuals and the systems within which they work
  • Help educational institutions meet their organizational goals
  • Transform practices within institutions

Doctorate in Educational Leadership Program

Leadership is a capacity — rather than a skill — one which we need now more than ever and one that develops through a longer learning process. As we find we need new ideas and approaches in the workplace, we realize that understanding leadership is necessary to move forward in the 21st century. Leadership means working with true collaboration to address problems and issues. It’s about adapting to change and working with and through relationships. Whatever your path may be, leadership will take your journey further.

"Putting yourself out there, being vulnerable, really came out through the doctoral program. All the work that I did in the program was directly related to the work that I was currently doing in my career. I had the teachings and support of my cohort, and when you're in that cohort and you're forced to work with people who are different, it really influences growth." - Dr. Adam Clark '16
