Welcome to the Department of Educational Administration
The Department of Educational Administration has been a part of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln since 1913. In those early years, we were the Department of School Administration and our focus was solely on the preparation of administrators for elementary and secondary schools. While our commitment to the preparation of PK-12 administrators continues, our program has expanded to include higher education. We added the doctoral specialization in Educational Leadership and Higher Education in the early 1990s. In 2000 we added the master's degree specialization in Student Affairs Administration and in 2006 we added a graduate certificate in community college leadership.
EDAD is committed to preparing individuals to serve and lead PK-20 educational organizations in the challenges facing 21st century teaching and learning. Our department has common interests in class, race, gender, access and equity across the PK-20 educational spectrum. Additional information about our faculty, staff, students and programs can be found under the FAQ's.
The 27th annual Women in Educational Leadership Conference
will be held on October 13-14th at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Lincoln, Nebraska. The conference will include keynote presentations as well as approximately 75 concurrent sessions offered by individuals in leadership positions in higher education and PK-12 settings.
The founding intent of the conference was to provide graduate students in the Department of Educational Administration with access to individuals in leadership roles from throughout the U.S. One benefit of conference attendance is the network of colleagues you will be able to develop through attendance. A second benefit is having access to presentations of current leadership studies and presentations on leadership skills and practices in educational settings.
We hope you will be able to attend and participate in the 27th annual Women in Educational Leadership Conference. Information about the conference and registration information can be found at www.welc.unl.edu
