The Urban Leadership PhD program seeks experienced school and district leaders, teacher leaders, policy makers, researchers, and other practitioners interested in bringing about systemic change in education. We believe that effective schools serve as important cornerstones in their community, and can help to enhance the vitality of those communities. Creating change throughout our educational system and meeting the challenges that the future holds requires ongoing reflection, inquiry, and adult learning. PhD students in our unique, cohort-based program become practitioner-scholars, studying real-life problems of practice, and drawing on evidence to drive decisions that promote equity, social justice, and accountability, in order to foster this systemic change.
Urban Leadership now offers courses both on-campus and at The Reef in Downtown Los Angeles, at times that are convenient to working professionals.
Please join us for an information session at Claremont Graduate University!
