student reading in class

Welcome to the Department of Educational Leadership, where we prepare students to develop educational practices and communities that are committed to institutional and community transformation, equity, and social justice. Our interest is in the study of educational change and leadership across educational organizational systems. Faculty and students throughout the Department share a common interest in linking research and practice, in the intellectual study of culture and social change.

We offer a range of undergraduate opportunities including a major in Education Studies, a minor in Community-Based Leadership, a thematic sequence in Critical Youth Studies, and a certificate in Outdoor Leadership. We also sponsor a number of courses housed in the Division of Student Life in the areas of leadership, service learning, career development, and university life.
