eULM's educational leadership program ranked in top 25

Posted: Updated:
MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News & ULM) - TheBestSchool.org—an online resource for campus and online education—has ranked the University of Louisiana at Monroe's online master's degree in educational leadership as one of the top programs in the nation based on over 10 different criteria.

The program Director, Dr. Amy Dagley said the ranking affirms the university's commitment to preparing educators with the tools needed for success.

“The ranking confirms for us we are moving in the right direction as we share this recognition with such prestigious programs across the nation,” she said.

ULM was recognized as number 21 on the list, and was the only school in Louisiana to be ranked. The site applauded ULM's recent U.S. News and World Report ranking and touted the program's highlights including extended internships, teacher leader endorsements, one-on-one mentoring, and hands-on learning.

“It's always gratifying to be recognized,” said Dr. Sandra Lemoine, dean of the College of Arts, Education, and Sciences. “Our college and the School of Education have excellent programs, both online and face-to-face. Our outstanding faculty continuously work to provide students with the experience, knowledge, and education they need in their careers.”

The criteria used to calculate the ranking include: overall quality, reputation, affordable cost, program availability, faculty credentials, graduation rate, student-to-teacher ratio, student and faculty support, technical support, as well as available financial aid, grants, and scholarships.

ULM's online master's degree in educational leadership is offered through the online platform, eULM, which serves as a specialized unit geared toward online and distance learning.

Paula Thornhill, director of eULM, is excited about yet another national ranking within the School of Education's online degree offerings.

“ULM's master of educational leadership has been instrumental in the academic careers of many educators, and we are pleased that the quality of the program continues to be recognized on a national level,” she said. 

“The School of Education is committed to serving educators by offering quality programs through innovative strategies and being ranked nationally in the top 25 programs is a testament to the commitment and dedication of ULM faculty and staff.”
