Educational Leadership (Administrative Services Credential)

Cal Poly Humboldt’s Educational Leadership Program (EDL) is designed for teacher leaders interested in improving education locally as well as globally. The EDL Program will enhance educators’ skills and knowledge base while preparing them to lead the way towards school improvement and increased student performance. This cohort model is designed to accommodate the schedules of busy educators through a blend of classroom, online, and video-conferencing instruction.

Why this Program

Classroom Immersion

Being able to apply what you learn in the classroom to a school classroom is a hallmark of an Humboldt Education degree.

Social Responsibility

Addressing the array of backgrounds, needs, and abilities of today’s youth, our program is built on a foundation of equity and social justice.

Close-knit Community

Start and end the program with the same group of students. That means seeing familiar faces, and building a sense of belonging and community.
