JIU created its Doctorate of Education in K-12 Education Leadership program for educators with the passion, vision, and focus to not only meet these new challenges, but who are committed to excellence and affecting positive change where they teach.The prime objective of our EdD program is to graduate K-12 leaders who are critical thinkers - with exceptional knowledge, skills, and integrity - who are able to apply theory to the creative and innovative solution of practical education problems.Our curriculum balances the study of theory with the practice of leadership in today's public schools. Students do not complete their program merely by reading and writing in their home offices. Instead, each student completes professional synthesizing projects, professional leadership development reports, and a dissertation that require him/her to apply classroom learning in practical ways - all under the guidance of supervising professors who are both scholars and successful practitioners. Graduates emerge confident and fully prepared to make a difference in their learning communities.

Our founder and chancellor, Glenn R. Jones, has devoted much of his life to his passionately held belief that education should be available to everyone, everywhere. A cable magnate, Jones in 1987 launched the cable television network Mind Extension Universityâ„˘ (ME/Uâ„˘), which enabled 30,000 students to take courses from more than 30 colleges and universities via television. In the nascence of the Internet, Jones foresaw the potential and started JIU in 1993 â€“ the first university anywhere to exist completely online.
