Doctoral Programs in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies

Welcome to the Educational Leadership and Policy Studies program at UVM. The study of leadership and policy studies in education requires a complex understanding of educational institutions, politics, culture, change processes, and the needs of an increasingly diverse and global world. Central to our program is the belief that the study of leadership and policy studies requires building and sustaining communities of learning between practitioners and researchers and the communities they serve. We develop change agents who can construct and apply knowledge to make a positive difference in the lives of individuals, families, and communities. Our program is nationally recognized and a member of the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED) including over 50 institutions of higher education across the United States. We are proud to offer both the Ed.D. and Ph.D. in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies.
