Program Overview Organizational Leadership, EdD
The Vision of the Doctor of Education (EdD) at Barry University is based on the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED). Barry University applies the CPED framework to the preparation of leaders to become well-equipped scholarly practitioners who provide stewardship of their profession and meet the organizational and educational challenges of the 21st century.
The EdD is a practitioner-doctorate program that prepares future and present leaders to develop essential knowledge and skills in solving complex problems of practice to improve the performance of organizations in both educational and non-educational settings.
Aligning with Barry’s mission statement to support communities through service learning, the program allows students to utilize their lifelong skill set and knowledge base to enhance performance in local organizations. This program, is centered around the goal of improvement and growth, both on individual and organizational levels. Students will therefore learn how to be of service to organizations and, especially, the people who those organizations employ. The design and the content of the program is aimed at equipping students with necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes to become successful change agents in organizations.
The Education Doctorate (Ed.D.) in Organizational Leadership has specializations in Higher Education Administration and Human Resource Development (HRD).
