Conferences and Opportunities

Education Conferences  (partial list)

We wish to encourage every student to attend an Educational Leadership focused conference this next year. Check with your employers to see if they will fund your attendance. If not, or only partial funding is available, the Ed.D. program will pay for your student-rate registration fee. Contact Ashley in advance of considering this offer. NOTE: if we pay for your registration but you do not attend, we expect it to be refunded to the program.
