About EDAD

About Our Program

The Seattle University EDAD program brings a unique theory of action toward preparing educational leaders for districts, schools and not-for-profits. Our graduates serve as thought leaders for organizations across the region that fight for educational justice, institutionalize cultures of learning and innovate in the service of educating each and every child.

Toward that end, our exceptional faculty bring a wide range of academic and applied experiences to the program. They are former and practicing building and district leaders nationally recognized for their work in guiding, improving and turning around schools and educational organizations.
