Two days ago, Endicott made an exciting announcement – regarding a goal that many people have been working hard to achieve for quite some time now. We couldn’t be happier with the reception this news has had in our community, and are exceedingly proud of how this accomplishment so wonderfully tops the growth we’ve seen over the past 25 years – from a small two-year women’s college of 600 to today’s campus of 2,300 undergraduate students and 2,700 adult and graduate students.
The news? Endicott has been authorized by the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education to award the first doctoral program on the North Shore, an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership!
In the Fall of 2012, we will begin to enroll students in the Educational Leadership Program, which will focus on preparing unique leaders for small to mid-size organizations in higher education, non-profit agencies, and schools. Emphasizing Endicott’s known strengths, the program will focus on theory, research, and applying these skills to improving organizations.
We would like to especially acknowledge Drs. Mary Huegel, Vice President and Dean of the Graduate School and Donna Buonopane, Assistant Dean of the Graduate School, for their leadership and documentation of this unique program. Though many have put countless hours into creating the program and achieving accreditation, these two administrators have lead the charge.
For more information about the doctoral program, please contact Dr. Mary Huegel at 978-232-2084, or mhuegel [at] endicott.edu.
Please join us in congratulation all involved – and in looking forward to meeting our first enrolled students next year!
