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. The focus was broadened in 1961 and we became the Department of Educational Administration. For many years, a main emphasis of the department was the preparation of administrators for public schools, mainly those of Nebraska. In the 1980's we began to expand our interests in post-secondary education. In the 1990's we added the specialization in Educational Leadership and Higher Education.
Our experienced administrators, curriculum specialists, and college administrators are dedicated to prepare you for the rewarding and fulfilling career in educational administration.

Bridging the Gaps to Improve Teaching and Learning
Bridging the Gaps is a research report evaluating the success of the Nebraska Title I School Improvement Plans to improve student achievement in identified schools. This mixed methods study examined perceptions held by administrators and teachers regarding the development and implementation of their school's Title I School Improvement Plan and the improvement evident at their school. Dr. Jody Isernhagen, Associate Professor, served as the Principal Investigator of the study. Jackie Florendo, an EDAD doctoral candidate and Graduate Assistant, served as the Secondary Investigator.
EDAD is pleased to continue our partnership with the Nebraska Department of Education and to provide the publication so that the State Board of Education, policy makers, and other educational constituencies can assess the effectiveness of Nebraska Title I School Improvement Plans.
