The mission of the Department of Educational Management and Development at New Mexico State University is to prepare and graduate capable, skillful and dynamic educational leaders for a diverse society. Through the use of theory and practice we aim to develop change agents and role models for socially-just educational systems. Using cohort models, the department of Educational Management and Developments offers three degree programs: Community College Administration, University Administration, and Educational Leadership. Students attend interactive classes (on-line, hybrid, weekend format) that accommodate professionals and that allow them to develop leadership skills in a learning community, be informed about current trends and policies affecting higher education, and prepare for careers in community college or university administration.
