Department of Educational Leadership COVID-19 Message

Given the partial shutdown of university offices, faculty and staff understand that EDL students will still have requests typically made in person, such as thematic sequence requests, changes of major, graduate forms to fill out and submit, and more. Although the office is physically closed, EDL staff can still be reached during office hours, Monday through Friday 8am - 5pm, to assist with these requests. Please leave a voicemail at (513) 529-6825, or feel free to email staff members at the following addresses so we can assist you: Kari - arnettkn@miamioh.edu, Kathy - rosenbk@miamioh.edu. In addition, you can email faculty members and advisors directly with questions about procedures and forms, etc., in the coming weeks. The Educational Leadership team wishes you well and best regards.

The Department of Educational Leadership (EDL) is a diverse and unique community at Miami. We offer Master's degrees in School Leadership, Transformative Education, and Student Affairs in Higher Education (SAHE). We offer Ph.D. degrees in Student Affairs in Higher Education (SAHE) and in Educational Leadership and offer an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership as well. We offer licensure programs in the school principalship and superintendency. We collaborate with school districts and Educational Service Centers to provide graduate programs for educators which are based in problems of practice, and in district or regional goals.

EDL also offers an undergraduate major in Education Studies and an array of undergraduate courses and programs. We have a thematic sequence in Critical Youth Studies, a certificate in Outdoor Leadership, and a minor in Community-Based Leadership. EDL offers courses in the Teacher Licensure core curricula, such as EDL 204: Socio-cultural Studies in Education, and EDL 318: Teacher Leadership & School Organization. We partner with an array of campus offices and programs to offer co-curricular courses designed to maximize the potential for student co-curricular learning: courses like EDL 100: Career Development and the College  Student, EDL110: The University and the Student, and EDL 290: The Nature of Group Leadership which help students of any major develop knowledge and experience in particular areas.
