CSUF to Introduce New Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership
Prospective doctoral students are invited to information meetings on Nov. 18 and Dec. 14.

November 15, 2006 :: No. 79

Prospective doctoral students are being invited to learn about Cal State Fullerton’s new doctoral program in educational leadership.

Information meetings will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 18, in Room 339 of CSUF’s University Hall and at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 14, in Room 335 of University Hall.

Louise Adler, director of the Ed.D. program and chair and professor of educational leadership, will conduct the meetings. She said classes will begin next fall, and student applications are being accepted through March 30, online at

Adler said students accepted in the first year of the program can specialize in PreK-12 Leadership. The university is planning to offer a second specialization in Community College Leadership in a subsequent year, she said.

The mission of the Ed.D. program is to prepare informed and reflective educational leaders who ethically apply critical skills of evaluation, analysis, synthesis and action to ensure excellence and equity in educational practice as they serve as stewards to the education community, Adler said.

Plans call for 15 students to be accepted into the three-year program each fall.

Adler said two classes —“Statistics for Ed.D. Students” (EDD 910) and “Doctoral Strategies” (EDD 920) — are being offered in the spring to introduce prospective doctoral students to the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in a doctoral program. However, enrollment in the classes is not required to gain admittance into the program.
