Educational Leadership at CSU Stanislaus

Educational Leadership at CSU Stanislaus is a Teaching and Learning Commons – a community of faculty and students committed to collaboration around central issues in educational leadership and reform. It is a forum for exchange of ideas and evidence-based best practices, discussing policy issues, and exploring central research questions.

The Doctor of Education (Ed.D.), Educational Leadership program at CSU Stanislaus is designed to prepare candidates with the advanced knowledge and skills to lead effective reform efforts in California’s pre-kindergarten schools through community colleges. It is a program designed specifically for working professionals in the field of education.

The Ed.D. at CSU Stanislaus is a degree program in which theory and research are applied to practice-based study of educational problems. The Commons supports the interaction of all members of the doctoral program community – faculty, students, and the many P-12 and community college educators from the northern San Joaquin Valley and surrounding region who contribute significantly to the program.
