Welcome to the Department of Organization & Leadership

  • Welcome to the Department of Organization & Leadership

    Welcome to the Department of Organization and Leadership, and especially to our Programs in Adult Learning and Leadership, Education Leadership, Higher and Postsecondary Education, Executive Program for Nursing, and Social-Organizational Psychology.

    Our MA, EDM, EDD, PhD degree programs are unique:

    • We link leadership and learning. Our faculty and students lead by helping others to learn, and by keeping their own continual learning at the center of how they lead.
    • We keep one foot in research and the other foot in practice. Some faculty and students conduct research and then apply it to practice. Others start with a deep understanding of practice, and then carry out research to improve that practice from the inside. Still others invent new ways to link these two activities. Our dual attention to research and practice guides our students’ experiences in and out of the classroom.
    • We recognize the value of organizations with diverse members. Our faculty seek to create organizations and communities comprised of diverse individuals who will bring unique insights, questions, and interests to collective endeavor. We prepare our students to develop and support diverse organizations.
    • We understand that the organizations and communities we serve must promote the common good. Our faculty and students conceive of leadership as an ethical imperative to act in ways that support our essential humanity, regardless of whether the organizations we serve are schools or colleges, hospitals, for-profit businesses, non-profit organizations, branches of the military, or government agencies.

    We hope that you will explore our pages and consider pursuit of your studies here.
