The leadership course content is relevant and applicable to my role as a school administrator. The assignments are job-embedded and the learning is authentic to my day-to-day practice. The professors go above and beyond to support their students and are incredibly high-quality, experienced professionals in the education field. I am a better school leader because of my experience in the Educational Leadership Doctoral program.
