Department Chair: Wenfan Yan
The Department of Leadership in Education prepares professionals for leadership roles in schools, college, universities, and other related institutions.
These are practice-oriented programs for full-time working professionals with diverse backgrounds and work settings. The programs are highly-regarded in the region for developing educational leaders in K-12 and higher education organizations. Highly dedicated faculty members have developed strong curricula in each program; they are active researchers whose scholarship has attracted national and international attention.
Leadership for change and social justice is a common core element in all three programs. The Department is committed to preparing thoughtful and responsive educational leaders who can foster transformation in urban schools and higher education institutions.
