Muckleshoot Cohort

Main page content


Recruitment and admissions for our next Indigenous/Native American focused EdD cohort will take place in 2022. The next cohort will begin in Summer 2023; application deadline is December 31, 2022. 

This specific cohort will be Indigenous-centered in the curriculum and approaches in the program. This program is appropriate for students holding a Master’s degree and who are in the educational field (and allied areas) working with Tribal communities. The University of Washington Tacoma in a joint partnership with the Muckleshoot Tribal College are offering Indigenous leaders the opportunity to apply to the Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership (EdD). The Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership (EdD) is designed to address conceptual issues of the roles educational leaders play in leadership, management/administration and political advocacy. All courses will be taught by Native American faculty/instructors (or individuals who have worked closely with tribal communities).
