Educational Leadership Overview

We’re a dynamic statewide program!

Education touches every corner of the state. So why shouldn’t we?

As we help prepare the leaders necessary to meet student needs in our current K-12 landscape, here are a few of the highlights:

  • WSU’s Educational Leadership program is one of 70 doctoral-granting programs nationwide selected for membership in the University Council for Educational Administration, a national consortium dedicated to the improvement of educational leadership preparation and practice. WSU’s graduate students have the opportunity to participate in UCEA’s annual convention and other professional activities.
  • WSU’s administrator certification programs are organized around the National Educational Leadership Program (NELP) standards, which have been adopted as the certification standards for Washington State licensure.
  • Priority deadline is January 10 for fall admission. Apply.
