The Leadership, Equity, and Inquiry Ph.D. is an interdisciplinary doctoral program steeped in social justice designed to develop your skills as a critical leader, researcher, and advocate. Our curriculum is built on deep-dive, content-rich courses focused on equity and inclusion issues in education and research. Your time in our program not only will prepare you to be a critical consumer of research, but a producer of research—research designed to make a difference to individuals, families, and communities.
Armed with these tools and knowledge, you will be prepared to help move the needle on important educational and societal issues across a range of venues and in a range of roles:
- Inside and outside educational organizations
- Nongovernmental organizations and think-tanks
- Work in the public sphere
- Community advocacy
- Social justice-committed, focused leadership
Classes meet four weekends per semester during the spring, fall, and summer semesters. A majority of candidates are part-time students with full-time jobs. Students have eight years to complete the degree.
