The Doctoral Program is located in the College of Education Building at Cal State San Bernardino.
The Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership is a dynamic program designed to prepare educational leaders with the knowledge base and skills to lead reform efforts that result in improved student outcomes and who are committed to equity, inclusion, and social justice. This 3-year cohort-based program meets the needs of full-time professionals in the field of education, either PreK-12 or Community College/Higher Education careers. Courses are conveniently offered on weekends, Friday 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Students from the Coachella Valley can attend Friday sessions through streaming from the CSUSB Palm Desert Campus. Students are encouraged to identify a field-based problem of practice for their dissertation research.
Our alumni work in leadership positions in PK-12 schools and community colleges. Many are now superintendents, community college presidents, principals, counselors, and school administrators. Our distinguished alumni have received numerous awards both as students and in their careers including the Waynne B. James Outstanding Dissertation Award, the President’s Distinguished Service Award, American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education Graduate Fellows, International Literacy Association’s “Global 30 Under 30,” and as Cohort Fellows for the Thomas Lakin Institute for Mentored Leadership.
Program faculty are drawn from the various colleges at CSUSB. Through research and practice, faculty contribute to the advancement of the broader field while staying in touch with the daily realities experienced by education professionals in contemporary schools and communities.
