Registration is required. The session will last approximately 60 minutes, including Q&A.

The P-12 Educational Administration (Principal Preparation) M.S. program is an on-campus cohort model program featuring 10 courses (30 credit hours) and mentored internship experiences (6 credit hours). The program is approved by ISBE and qualifies graduates for positions as principals and assistant principals, and related leadership positions.

The program’s conceptual framework is Practical Wisdom for Leaders: Connecting Theory to Practice, which encompasses the following:

  • Leadership preparation features a dynamic relationship between practice and scholarship.
  • Courses blend themes of leadership, learning, and social justice in the context of practical wisdom.
  • Faculty honor diverse voices and multiple perspectives.
  • Graduates are our partners in the field, building inclusive learner-centered communities.
  • It’s framed around questions of equity, ethics, and social justice to bring about solutions to complex problems of practice.

The P-12 Administration (CPED) Ed.D. program prepares leaders who can construct and apply knowledge to make a positive difference on all lives within school communities. It is designed for educators who hold a master’s degree, have licensure or a Type 75 certificate, and have some building or district leadership experience. Students may also complete requirements for superintendent or chief school business official endorsement on a professional educator license.

  • This is a Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED) program. It seeks to build sustainability and capacity in education leaders by integrating school improvement research into training for aspiring P-12 leaders.
