Mission and Vision

Mission Statement

The Department of Educational Leadership mission is to prepare candidates for leadership in the field of education, by facilitating a rigorous program of study that emphasizes quantitative and qualitative reasoning, critical thinking, social justice, and emotional intelligence. The department graduate programs, the Master of School Administration (MSA) and the Doctor of Educational Leadership (EDD) prepare candidates to serve in the Southeastern region of North Carolina and beyond to become exemplary visionary leaders. 

As a new member of the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED), the faculty is committed to becoming actively engaged in rethinking and redesigning the professional doctorate in education by setting high academic expectations, with a focus on social justice and academic excellence for a better world locally and globally. The MSA and EDD programs are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (formerly NCATE) and authorized by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction to offer school administration and superintendent licensees. 

Vision Statement 

The vision of the Department of Educational Leadership is for its master and doctoral programs to become nationally recognized based on the Specialty Professional Standards (ELCC) at the building and district level, to meet the newly approved advanced accreditation standards for EPPs through CAEP continued reaffirmation, and maintain the CPED status. Our vision is to continue the tradition of preparing candidates to be critical, analytical, and caring leaders. The Educational Leadership Programs vision promotes an environmental culture defined primarily by the qualities of the candidates produce and by the number of graduates who are hired, promoted, and recognized annually among their peers in the Southeastern Region of North Carolina and beyond.

We support the CPED Guiding Principles for the professional doctorate in education:

*Is framed around questions of equity, ethics, and social justice to bring about solutions to complex problems of practice.

*Prepares leaders who can construct and apply knowledge to make a positive difference in the lives of individuals, families, organizations, and communities.

*Provides opportunities for candidates to develop and demonstrate collaboration and communication skills to work with diverse communities and to build partnerships.

*Provides field-based opportunities to analyze problems of practice and use multiple frames to develop meaningful solutions.

*Is grounded in and develops a professional knowledge base that integrates both practical and research knowledge, that links theory with systemic and systematic inquiry.

*Emphasizes the generation, transformation, and use of professional knowledge and practice.
