UToledo is educating dynamic, effective school leaders who make a difference.
The mission of The University of Toledo’s graduate program in educational administration and supervision is to develop principals, superintendents and educational leaders who are ethical, creative and collaborative problem solvers in preK-12 education.
The EDAS curriculum is a blend of practical experience, leadership theory and research design. UToledo graduate students think deeply about the impact of leadership on a school community or district. They learn to use data to improve schools and enhance student learning.
Ohio licensure is available with additional course work beyond the degree program. Licensure is a requirement for public school principals and other building-level administrators, as well as district-level leaders.
