Why Did you Choose St. Cloud State’s Educational Administration and Leadership Program?

SCSU’s Educational Administration and Leadership Program gave me background knowledge, information, and tools to use in all areas of school leadership from human resources and school-law, to school operations and budget. Through SCSU’s EDAD program I was able to shadow and learn from acting administrators, develop and conduct an action research project, and experience and compile evidence in all areas of school leadership into a professional portfolio.

The program prepared me well for all areas of school leadership. I was able to take what I learned in class and apply it to my daily work. I was also able to bring on the job questions and discuss them with my professors and colleagues. The program pushed me to grow as an educator, leader, and professional.

During my time in the program, I was able to create a professional network with staff and colleagues. To this day, I continue to stay in touch with many of these professionals. Staying in contact with this group has been a great way to network for upcoming opportunities and brainstorm solutions. I now have a strong group of advisors that continue to provide me with advice, input, and ideas.
