The vision of these programs is to prepare transformational leaders who will become change agents committed and prepared to improve the quality of learning communities and learning across the life span.
We welcome your interest in our programs! Our students develop their abilities to plan learning programs for both adults and K-12 settings; help communities in capacity-building; orchestrate professional development activities; foster learning for advocacy, action, and social justice; improve organizational capabilities; and conduct research in these settings and beyond. Our students provide leadership through research, scholarly contributions, and participation in a wide variety of positions across the field of education and around the world.
Students learn to team with faculty and field professionals beyond classroom experiences as demonstrated in our most recent student contributions. To see a preview of our current faculty research interests click here.
