The Department of Educational Leadership and Policies is composed of two degree program areas -- CD-12 Educational Administration and Higher Education and Student Affairs -- and the Community College Leadership Alliance. Our instructional programs prepare administrators and other professional personnel to provide educational leadership in both public and private sectors in the areas of educational administration and higher education. Through service, the Department assists individuals as well as public and private agencies and institutions in improving professional practice and performance. Through scholarship, the faculty extends the limits of knowledge in the field and refines existing educational leadership theory, practice, and policy. The Department is located on the third floor of Wardlaw College at the corner of Sumter and Greene Streets in Columbia, South Carolina.
