leadershipThe faculty, students and alumni of the Shippensburg University’s Educational Leadership Program welcome you!  We also encourage you to explore your graduate education possibilities with “Ship Family” which boasts a long tradition of developing leaders for the field of public education.  As a result, we have a strong network of educators in key decision making roles throughout the region, state and in higher education.

As one school district administrator commented,  “When looking to fill leadership positions we can always tell who attended Shippensburg University’s Program.  They just seem to be strongly grounded in the vision and values we look for and they are always well informed.”

To sustain this center of excellence we have engaged the services of an award winning faculty with both regional and nationally recognized credentials to instruct, mentor and closely advise students.  Working alongside of this group of talented tenured faculty is a small core of Leadership Fellows who are distinguished leadership practitioners and they are active professionals in the field who have established a pattern of excellence in their areas of expertise.

We have also developed a powerful collection of revised and new programming features in our 33 credit M.Ed. Leadership Degree (which includes the Principal Certification Coursework) as well as our Post M.Ed. Principal’s Certificate Program, our Supervisory Certificate Programs and our unique Leadership Residency Program for those seeking the Superintendent’s Letter of Eligibility.

Our capstone ED.D. Degree program in partnership with Millersville University is especially designed to create scholar/practitioners to meet the challenges of 21st Century school district executive leadership.  As an added bonus all of our Leadership Residency coursework (Superintendent’s Letter of eligibility courses taken at Shippensburg University) count towards your ED.D degree!
