Community College Leadership
The doctorate in education with concentration in community college leadership prepares faculty and administrators for leadership roles in technical and community colleges, higher education settings and similar organizations. The focus is on the application of quality research to the problems and opportunities in community and technical colleges.
The Ed.D. degree is offered by Oregon State University's College of Education and Ecampus.
Classes are two weekends per term at a conference center located at scenic Silver Falls State Park near Salem, Ore., or at the Wilsonville Training center in Wilsonville, Ore. Students meet and study with their cohort at these locations as well as online for the first two years of this program.
Collaborative cohort model
Students enroll as members of a cohort with the goal of participating in an active learning community. Participants are working professionals in higher education settings from Oregon, Washington, California and a variety of Western states. Graduates already include presidents and senior leaders in many of the two-year colleges throughout the United States. Collaboration has been the key to both degree excellence and graduates' career success. A major professor guides each student through the program.
Students in this program may have the option of pursuing a Ph.D. in Education with a concentration in Community College Leadership, depending on faculty availability and research interest. Please contact Shelley Dubkin-Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
