Organization and Leadership

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: School of Education

The Organization and Leadership program is committed to providing students with knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to become leaders in educational settings and community contexts. We believe in leaders who are motivated to transform themselves, organizations and institutions by developing skills to a) understand and critique systems of power and b) reimagine, create, and lead organizations based on principles of justice, democratic participation, and service. 

Students may pursue the M.A. in Higher Education and Student Affairs (HESA) or a M.A. or Ed.D. in Organization and Leadership. 

Organization and Leadership graduates are prepared to assume leadership positions in a variety of settings. They may also consider consulting or higher education teaching positions.

Educational Philosophy of the O&L Program

The O&L program collaboratively prepares graduate students who will possess the knowledge, skills, values and vision to transform and change organizations as leaders. We assume that adult learners bring skill sets to the learning environment where collaborative student-centered interactions can take place among faculty and peers. It is through dialog, new knowledge and experiences that new ideas and reform can take place. In the Jesuit tradition of valuing the student learner, faculty seek to provide students with opportunities for self-renewal and growth.
