Department of Leadership Studies and Adult Education

Greetings from the Chair of LSAD:  

Welcome to the Department of Leadership Studies and Adult Education (LSAD). My name is Comfort Okpala, Chair and Professor in the department where I have the pleasure of working alongside with dedicated faculty who strive to prepare professionals from diverse educational backgrounds, training, and experiences to become global leaders and adult education practitioners. 

Our master’s degree program in Adult Education prepares professionals to become leaders for adult learners in businesses, for-profit and non-profit organizations, community colleges, and four-year institutions of higher education. Our Adult Education program also prepares candidates for doctoral programs in a variety of disciplines. Additionally, we are proud that our Adult Education degree program was ranked #13 nationally by Graduateprograms.com. 

The Leadership Studies doctoral program is an interdisciplinary degree designed to prepare professionals to become transformative scholars in the leadership discipline. This program intentionally seeks individuals who have excelled in formal leadership positions in their respective organizations as we strive to immerse these candidates in research inquiry that studies and examines leadership theory and promising leadership practice. Alumni from this program have attained positions as college presidents, deans of Schools and Colleges at institutions of higher education, and vice-presidents of programs at Health, Non-Profit, and Business organizations. 

Both of these degree programs provide graduate candidates with numerous opportunities to engage in research efforts alongside our nationally known faculty. Our candidates are active in professional organizations, and they conduct research presentations at various local, state, and national conferences. Additionally, our candidates have opportunities to submit peer-reviewed publications in highly regarded journals. 

I encourage you to search our website to learn more about our degree programs, then, I encourage you to schedule a visit to learn more about our College of Education and our university. We anxiously await the opportunity to work with you to improve our communities!

PREEMINENCE BEFORE 2020!!

On Sunday, May 20, 2018, the senior group of Sowell, Ordonez, Rivera, Hunt and McAlister along with Hall and the rest of the Aggies baseball program won the 2018 MEAC championship with a 12-9 win over their longtime nemesis in the tournament, the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats.

Aggies Blowout FAMU, Win Southern Division Title

North Carolina A&T baseball added to the championship collection. The best season in North Carolina A&T Athletics history since joining the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in 1971 apparently still has a lot of steam left. N.C. A&T baseball scored a bunch of runs en route to the MEAC Southern Division regular-season title thanks to a 25-15 defeat of Florida A&M Saturday at Moore-Kittles Field.
