Why an Executive Leadership (Ed.D.) from Le Moyne?
Le Moyne’s Ed.D. in Executive Leadership provides leadership development for professionals in the fields of education, business and healthcare or for those seeking to enter the educational arena. Our innovative program offers a unique learning opportunity for professionals who, as leaders, are committed to promoting a just society and serving as men and women for and with others.
Graduates of this program will be transformative leaders who use a multidisciplinary approach to design and implement change that is socially responsible to solve problems and create solutions that constructively impact their institutions and organizations.
Whether leading in education, healthcare, social work, non-profit or business, the program supports the development of executive leaders responsible for the creation and enactment of an organization’s shared mission. As executive leaders, graduates of the program will formulate a vision and values as they promote a culture of caring and develop the professional capacity of all organizational members while facilitating innovative change processes that support continuous organizational growth and improvement.
Those with expertise in administration, whether it be in public or private school settings, higher education, teacher leadership as well as those responsible for organizational growth and development in healthcare, business and other entities will grow their competencies in leadership and research. Students will work collaboratively, as a community of learners with faculty members and research mentors, to enhance their leadership skills.
Organizational leadership at the executive level, especially in education, cannot exist in a silo. The interconnectedness of our world supports the development of academic programs that model collaboration among diverse individuals with divergent types and levels of professional experience. Executive leaders should be able to engage in collaborative problem solving with a variety of stakeholders from within their organizations as well as with parties outside the organization in both the private and public sectors. Organizations and their communities are interdependent.
Le Moyne College’s doctoral program mirrors this interdependency and will be central to the leadership and administrative growth of candidates. This program is built to attract and support the development of leaders who will aspire to create educational cultures that model collaboration built upon foundations of social justice and to create cultures that are informed by best practices in leadership and administration from multiple organizational settings, such as teacher leadership, higher education, business and health care. True to our Jesuit mission and Jesuit tradition, graduates of this program will become transformative leaders who use a multidisciplinary approach to design and implement socially responsible change.
Program goals reflect four pillars of excellence: Leadership that Transforms, Social Responsibility, Scholarship and Communication. Each pillar further specifies one or two program outcomes in the leadership development of doctoral graduates.
Leadership that Transforms
Candidates will generate new ways to demonstrate compassionate engagement in the world; a commitment to service; promotion of community spirit; and, the ability to foster and lead necessary change.
Candidates will expand upon their own refined moral and ethical code of conduct; and, consistent actions that promote a more just society.
Candidates will create new inclusive structures and opportunities to embrace and show respect for cultural and social differences; behavior that reflects how they structure societies; and; actions that value full inclusion
Candidates will analyze and synthesize a personal awareness of the Jesuit tradition that encourages examination of issues of ultimate meaning; examines what it means to be the ideal of men and women for and with others; and, models the care of the whole person.
Candidates will evaluate and generate: a strong foundational knowledge in executive leadership content, skills and dispositions; specialized expertise in the field of education; collaboration skills within multidisciplinary learning opportunities; critical thinking; effective communication; and, the ability to make intellectual connections.
Candidates will integrate strong and effective communication skills in all modalities that permeate each of the other pillars.
