WestConn’s EdD program in Instructional Leadership is the only doctorate of its kind in Connecticut and is one of only a few doctoral programs in the country to focus on instructional leadership. The dynamic curriculum prepares educators, such as teachers, curriculum specialists, counselors, school psychologists, and administrators to create innovative learning environments; to respond to reform at the national, state and local levels; and to transform educational organizations. Therefore, program experiences were designed to strengthen the knowledge, skills, and dispositions of Candidates as they lead educational reform efforts.
The EdD Program is organized to accept a new Cohort of students every other year, beginning in fall 2003. The cohort model provides a peer group for students as they progress through the program together. With a total of approximately 20 participants per Cohort, members of the first Cohort graduated in May 2008. The program faculty members also strive to maintain a strong commitment to both the community and to the students by consistently examining and updating the program where appropriate.
