Welcome to Appalachian State's Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership!
Appalachian State University’s Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership fosters the development of educators who embrace just and sustainable practices. We support and nurture a wide variety of research methodologies that enhance collaborative learning to create positive individual, social, cultural, and institutional change. We consistently engage in a critical analysis of biases including race, gender, poverty, and all other identities that shape our lives. Across a variety of disciplines, our inclusive and challenging program inspires a diversity of critical thought and unique transformative experiences.
