Description

The Educational Leadership Program (ELP) is a self-supporting Ed.D. degree program, designed for working professionals to complete the degree in three years. ELP is committed to promoting innovative and change-oriented educational leaders. We fully embrace the public service mission of UCLA as a leading public research university and the social justice vision of the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies. What distinguishes ELP from other leadership programs is its unique melding of theory, practice, and experiential learning. The program combines a commitment to PreK-16 expertise, access and equity, and rigorous student-focused teaching and learning. ELP's collaborative, cohort-based model embodies the theory that knowledge is constructed not imparted.
