Program Goals

The goal of the EdD Program in Educational Leadership, with its theme focusing on diversity management, is to offer its graduates high caliber, professional knowledge and training which will enable them to effectively address organizational challenges related to governance in diverse contexts.

The leadership concepts take into consideration the diversity of theoretical perspectives, social and political institutions, social contexts and actors in these social contexts.

Students will study leadership theories and practices and situate them in educational politics.  They will implement applications in their own fields of expertise as leaders and practicians.

More specifically, this program studies the theory and practice pertaining to managing diversity in French minority communities.

The Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University continues to rely on creating dynamic partnerships with Canadian and international universities, school districts, professional associations, community and governmental organizations to ensure that the next generation of leaders meets the specific education needs of Francophones and Francophiles in Canada.
