Muckleshoot Cohort

Main page content


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).
