The goal of the Master of Education in Instructional Leadership program at Northeastern State University is to create accomplished teachers who are reflective about their practice and who critically analyze what constitutes effective teaching and valuable learning.

Teachers will use and understand research and the role it plays in academic decisions and pedagogical practices. These teachers will also collaboratively engage students, parents, colleagues, and communities in educative pursuits which foster partnerships and life-long learning.
