About The EdD

The Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership for Social Justice develops critical and courageous scholar-practitioners who lead transformations in education and related fields. Students engage in skill-building activities in both research and practice that fuel socially responsible, effective leadership in solidarity with our communities. Such leadership disrupts the expansion of historic inequalities that impact California student achievement and success and leverages our privilege and institutional resources to transform education and related institutions.

The application cycle for the June 2025 Cohort will open in September 2024. We strongly encourage attending an online Information Session to help you assess if our program is good match for your career goals. Check here  for a list of upcoming sessions.
