Welcome to the Adult Learning and Leadership Program

Lifelong learning for adults is an increasingly important educational specialization in the 21st century. The massive economic, political, social and psychological changes that are transforming the nature and structure of virtually all institutions in society have rendered obsolete the notion that people can be adequately educated, once and for all, in their youth. In addition, the challenges faced by adults today call for changes in our social, economic, and political systems. The Adult Learning and Leadership Program emphasizes transformative learning and development for adult and organizational change in many different settings — educational institutions, business and non-profit or government institutions, healthcare, and community settings. We prepare educational leaders to create bridges to strengthen organizational, community, and national capacity.
