Doctorate Degree Program Profile at KU

Students in the KU programs primarily come from school districts within a 100 mile radius of the Kansas City metropolitan and greater Lawrence areas. Based on the fact that classes are scheduled back-to-back on only one day of the week, extended commuting is feasible.   Most students in the doctoral program are principals or central office personnel. 

Students in the program come from a wide variety of school districts and bring with them a wealth of information and experiences. This diversity enriches the program as students often learn from their colleagues as well as from the professors. Students in the administrative leadership programs are considered the leaders in their schools and districts and have been highly recommended by senior administrators within their districts.
