Organization & Leadership Master's Program

Organization Leadership Student"The most rewarding aspects from being an O&L student thus far have been the connections I've made with both my professors and fellow peers. My advisor, along with the other faculty, have supported me every step of the way. My peers, through the impactful work they're doing in schools across California, continue to inspire me to be a better scholar and leader." - Mario Gonzalez, current student
