Educational Policy and Leadership Graduate Programs

Exceptional Educational Leadership Roles Through Distinct Specializations

The educational policy and leadership programs prepare graduate students for exceptional educational leadership roles in the areas of study through distinct specializations. Through a systematic focus on the social, cultural, philosophical and historical contexts of education, we are committed to the development of professionals as agents of critical inquiry and social justice.

These specialization programs prepare teachers to uphold the Jesuit tradition of care for the person, social justice, academic excellence, ethical behavior and service to the urban community.
