The Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis has as its primary purpose the graduate preparation of individuals who will serve as educational leaders in K-12 schools, community/technical colleges, four-year colleges and universities, and other organizations/agencies that offer educational programs and services. Programs in the department are approved by the Tennessee Department of Education. Programs leading to licensure are also approved by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Student programs are individually designed to develop educational leaders through the study and practical application of educational foundations, theory, research, and field work.
