The School of Strategic Leadership Studies Ph.D. program was established in 2009 and awarded its first degree four years later. The program's distinctive character owes much to its emphasis on quantitative research and its synthesis of coursework spanning a broad array of disciplines.

Faculty conduct high-level inquiry into leadership’s sources and dynamics – especially as they relate to non-profit/community organizations, institutions of higher education and corporate/industrial entities. 

Emerging scholars and practitioners benefit by working with dedicated advisors, engaging with their peers face-to-face in small classes and working alongside faculty members who have an expertise in leadership. 


The School of Strategic Leadership Studies develops leadership scholar practitioners through rigorous, quantitative-based, interdisciplinary study.


We envision a world with exceptional, ethical, and evidence-based leadership across spheres of influence and knowledge.
