"When I decided to continue my educational journey with a doctoral program, I knew the U of I College of Education's online programs had what I was looking for: live interaction in online classes from an institution with a respected reputation. What I found exceeded those expectations. The online Ed.D. program provided rigorous course work in both foundational and cutting-edge research and mentorship with faculty who are respected in their field and cared about my success. As a scholar-practitioner, I couldn't have asked for a better experience to enrich both my career and academic interests."
