Drawing upon traditional strengths in social foundations, educational leadership, higher education, and human resource development, the Department of Education Policy, Organization and Leadership enables graduate students and faculty to support and collaborate with each other in coordinated new synergies to address the most critical issues in Preschool-12 and postsecondary education. The department fosters an interdisciplinary understanding of educational policy and practice across traditional divides among philosophers, historians, social scientists, organizational theorists, policy analysts, and educational administrators.
With more than 30 faculty members and approximately 700 graduate students, the department has several major concentrations. Scholars engage in collaborative research and teaching efforts that take them across major concentrations within the department as well as into other departments within the college and larger university.
EPOL is a strong leader in the college’s commitment to provide innovative online graduate programs to students irrespective of location.
Graduate students approach a variety of research concentrations within the department through our EPOL Divisions.
