Department Chair: David Dolph, Ph.D.

Offering master’s and doctoral-level programs, the University of Dayton Department of Educational Leadership prepares its students for leadership at all levels of public, Catholic, and other non-public schools. Research conducted by the department’s faculty and students contributes to best practices in school administration.

The department achieved several marks of excellence from the Ohio Board of Regents in January 2013: Its Educator Preparation Performance Report noted that nearly 20 percent of Ohio’s newly licensed principals earned degrees from the University of Dayton, and the students of these principals meet or exceed expectations at a higher rate than those of graduates of other Ohio principal license programs.
