The Educational Doctorate (“Ed. D.”) in Educational Leadership is offered jointly by the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and Southeastern Louisiana University. The program is administered by a Consortium Committee comprised of individuals from both campuses. We are very excited about this partnership, and together have developed a fantastic doctoral program. Candidates admitted to this program will embark on an exhilarating adventure that will benefit not only the candidate, but also the school district or university in which she or he is employed.
Also, the EDFL program is closely associated with the Center for Childhood Development, who has as its overarching goal to generate high-quality research, use of research-based findings to guide public policy and practices and dissemination of best practices models to practitioners, public agencies and the general public. We anticipate that the Center for Child Development will assist the program with dissertation research projects as well as other valuable research opportunities.
