Educational leadership faculty

The Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies’ Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Educational Leadership Program prepares educational leaders, researchers, and policy makers in its 4-year, cohort-based program geared toward the working professional. 

Graduates of our program assume prominent positions of leadership in public and private school systems and research and policy organizations in the state of Connecticut, across the nation, and around the globe. 

The program offers two concentrations:

  • General Concentration: a “General” concentration through which students craft a unique program of study to suit their particular professional interest in PreK-12 Educational Leadership, Higher Education Leadership, Educational Research, Educational Policy, or other education-related areas.
  • 092 Connecticut Intermediate Administrator Certification Concentration: an 092 Connecticut Intermediate Administrator Certification concentration through which students are certified to serve as building-level leaders in the state of Connecticut.

Students admitted to this program are provided a cohort model, rigorous face-to-face and hybrid courses, field-based leadership and research experiences, personalized faculty advisement, classes one night per week, online and campus-based supports/resources, opportunities to publish and present research, and access to professional organizations and networks intended for this most advanced level of study.

The Sixth-Year Certificate Program in Educational Leadership is designed to equip educators with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to serve, not only as administrators, but as genuine leaders, in the state of Connecticut's public school system. After successful completion of the program and the CT CAT exam, candidates are eligible for the 092 Connecticut Intermediate Administrator Certification.

The 30-credit program employs a cohort model, with cohorts meeting for class on-campus or at area school districts including Branford (Mondays), Hamden (Tuesdays), Cheshire (Wednesdays), and Waterford (Thursdays). Paired classes are scheduled back-to-back on the same evening for the convenience of our students, all of whom are practicing educators.
