A Doctorate in Education with a concentration in Community College Leadership prepares faculty and administrators for leadership roles in technical and community colleges and similar organizations. The focus is on the application of quality research to the problems and opportunities in community colleges.
Students enroll as members of a cohort with the goal of participating in an active learning community. Classes are scheduled for an intensive weekend twice per term at an off-campus conference center in Oregon. Instructional methods include group and individual projects, scholarly discussion, and a professional internship. A major professor guides each student through the program.
Applicants need a minimum of three years of professional experience in technical or community colleges or a professional field related to teaching, learning and/or leadership.
In addition to the Ed.D., there is an option to pursue a Ph.D. This option is highly competitive. Applicants must have a research oriented career goal and must demonstrate their ability to contribute to a faculty members research activities. Applicants wishing to pursue this option are encouraged to seek degree and pre-admission advising. Contact Joe Johnson (541)-737-3574 firstname.lastname@example.org
