The Leadership in Educational Administration Doctorate (LEAD) Ed.D. program prepares future leaders for leadership positions throughout the education system.
Do you want to advance your career without having to leave your job? This program provides a unique path for students interested in becoming educational leaders with a curriculum that links research with practice. Ultimately, graduates are prepared for careers and advancement as leaders at the school, district, state, and national level.
The unique blended format offers classes online, with students attending up to two weekend meetings per semester held on the UF campus in Gainesville, Florida. We admit students to the blended LEAD program annually. The next cohort is expected to begin Fall 2020 and is now closed. Applications are beginning for the 2021 LEAD Cohort. Typically, the degree can be completed in four years of part-time study.
