THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP WELCOMES YOU TO OUR PAGE!The Educational Leadership Department in Teachers College, Ball State University, is one of the most vibrant and well-known academic units at the university and in Indiana. According to the most recent U.S. News and World Report ranking of online masters in educational administration and supervision programs, Ball State was ranked 11th in the nation. Ball State is the number one provider of school principals in Indiana and the second largest provider of school superintendents.
In 2018-2019 the Educational Leadership Department moved from a P-12 to a P-16 program with the addition of three full-time faculty with a focus on higher education and community college leadership. This move has created a new dynamic that has brought an expanded programmatic perspective to the preparation of educational leaders at Ball State. We are now the home for the nationally recognized Master’s Program in Student Affairs Administration in Higher Education (SAAHE). Begun in 1965, SAAHE has graduated over 800 outstanding higher education leaders across the nation.
Social Justice Research in Higher Education AwardIn addition to raising funds for our general departmental foundation fund, we are also fundraising for the Social Justice Research in Higher Education Award, housed within our department. Below is an overview of the Award.
Systemic racism and anti-Blackness are entrenched within U.S. society, of which higher education is a part. On the heels of the COVID-19 pandemic and the murder of George Floyd, the higher education program faculty became even more aware of the need to connect espoused values with action. Therefore, this fund was created as one means to address and redress systemic racism and anti-Blackness through social justice research in higher education.
Our goal is to sustainably provide two awards per year in the amount of $500 to students enrolled in the Ed.D. in Higher Education whose research forefronts social justice imperatives. Criteria for awards are as follows--
