Mission & Goals

The Educational Leadership doctoral program at D'Youville College is designed to prepare working professionals for leadership positions in public, private and for-profit education settings.

The program emphasizes understanding of critical leadership and administrative issues facing educational institutions, trends in curriculum, instruction and assessment as well as knowledge of an increasingly complex cultural, legal and governance context. Its focus on theory, research, and inquiry is honed through analysis of the practice setting, where the aim of the program is to develop practitioners who use informed inquiry to understand and improve the day-to-day practice of education so as to serve the public good.
