Doctoral Program Recognized For Preparing School Leaders  

ELMP GraduatesThe College of Education and Human Services' Education Leadership program achieved several significant milestones over the past few months.
The College's Doctoral Program was recognized  as one of the four best model programs for Education Leadership in the country. In their book, Six Steps to Preparing Exemplary Principals and Superintendents, published in 2010 by Rowman and Littlefield, Drs. John Hoyle and Mario Torres, Jr, cite the program as a “major player” in the preparation of school leaders.  In addition to this honor, the authors cite Mrs. Maureen Hoatson, Assistant to the ELMP Chair, as one of the top three effective program administrators chosen from over 400 such people serving doctoral programs nationwide.
Finally, doctoral graduates from the Department of Education Leadership, Management, & Policy had another productive semester by reaching the professional pinnacle in their field. Eight students from the doctoral program were appointed as public school superintendents during the Spring 2010 semester. Having large numbers of doctoral graduates reach the top of their profession is another example of the overall quality of the education leadership program offered by the department.
