ED CHOICE: Flexibility = Student Success

New Options for Learning Provide Maximum Flexibility

ED CHOICE is a new and unique program delivery model designed to meet the needs of students in the real world, where life commitments sometimes interfere with classroom demands. ED CHOICE allows doctoral students to fulfill commitments while earning a doctoral degree.

Each week students choose to attend class on campus or online. There's no fear of falling behind in class work, or disappointing a child because of missing his or her school play or soccer game.

ED CHOICE offers students total control over how to experience the coursework leading to the successful completion of their degree.

This new program model features:

  • The same professor for on-campus and online learning options
  • A weekly ability to switch from on-campus to online, and vice versa
  • A smooth and uninterrupted path to your doctoral degree

Program Outcomes

Upon completion of the doctoral program in Higher Education Leadership, candidates will be able to:

  • Commit to and act upon the principles of servant leadership.
  • Demonstrate their role to prepare both themselves and the learning community to build a just society.
  • Identify, promote, and sustain high performance learning communities.
  • Apply research methodologies for systemic improvement of schools and other educational communities and institutions.
  • Analyze and articulate the individual and social purposes of education.
  • Evaluate the role of servant leaders as stewards of both human and fiscal resources.
