Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership
Appalachian's Doctoral Program is designed as cohort model primarily for working educators from all sectors of the professional realm. We encourage effective communication, cooperation, and collaboration; we value and promote diversity at all levels. We prepare our cohort members to be change agents, informed consumers of research, and proactive contributors to their professions and communities.
