The core concept of instruction in the Educational Leadership Doctoral Program is the cohort. When candidates are admitted to the program they become members of a community of scholars. The cohort is intended to be a cohesive, critical, interactive group that provides the support and nurturing that can be helpful as candidates progress through their doctoral studies.
