Educational Leadership

Mission Statement

In keeping with the mission of Virginia Tech, the Educational Leadership Program serves the Commonwealth of Virginia, the nation, and the world community through its focus on preparing educational leaders, conducting scholarly inquiry on issues and policies in education, and engaging educators in their efforts to improve education for all children and youth.

Through its masters, specialist, and doctoral programs, the educational leadership faculty develops the skills and abilities of people who are willing to take the responsibilities and challenges of leadership and scholarship as educational leaders in local, state, national, and international organizations; as university faculty; and as researchers in educational leadership and policy studies.
