Guided by the values of discernment, continuous improvement, care of the whole person, social justice, democratic ideals, and service to others, the Educational Leadership Department is dedicated to cultivating future scholar practitioners.

Our program graduates as a community of learners aspire to hold key positions in which they can engage in reform and transformational leadership by informing practical experience with theoretical knowledge in a variety of settings, including but not limited to local, national, and international schools and organizations. Our future leaders are committed to leading with mind, hope, and heart. Our mission inspires living our best self in alignment with Jesuit ideals.

The Department of Educational Leadership at Saint Joseph's University offers a doctoral program (Interdisciplinary Doctor of Educational Leadership Program-IDEPEL) and a 30-credit M.S. in Educational Leadership and Administration that can lead to PA administration certifications in PK-12 settings.
