Department of Lifelong Education, Administration, and Policy


Known for pioneering work locally, nationally, and internationally, the department of lifelong education, administration, and policy includes three program areas: adult education, learning and organizational development; qualitative inquiry; and educational administration and policy. Our department faculty challenge and engage students in graduate education programs focused on intellectual inquiry, research, and practice, and our programs prepare leaders who create and share knowledge and strategies to improve the quality of life of individuals and organizations.

Department faculty are recognized nationally and internationally for numerous contributions in research and policy development. Research interests among the department’s faculty include action research, multicultural perspectives in adult education, education law, gender inequity, administration, school improvement, education policy, human resource and organizational development, the superintendency, and qualitative research methods.
