The Department of Educational Administration is a member of the Professional Education Unit at SUNY Brockport and is fully accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) for its educational administration programs.

SUNY Brockport’s Department of Educational Administration is committed to developing educational leaders adept at building relationships, managing schools and districts and developing the habits of mind that will sustain them throughout their careers.

We are committed to providing a practical, research-based, hands-on program that prepares administrators for their professional lives and meets the needs of our students’ busy schedules.

The Department will continue to utilize the latest developments in technology and instructional delivery models to focus learning on critical thinking, data-based decisions making and the application of leadership and management skills in the real world.

Thousands of students have graduated from our program, with many of them going on to serve in administrative positions throughout the state and country. Some graduates return to the department as adjunct faculty, bringing with them their knowledge and expertise as field practitioners.
