From the Chair
Welcome to the School of Leadership and Development(SLD)!
As incoming Chair, I have had the privilege and blessing of working at SLD in the Campolo College of Graduate and Professional Studies at Eastern University for the last four years, directing and teaching in the MBA in Economic Development and MA in International Development programs. During this time, I have come to love and respect my colleagues here at SLD and at the other two wonderful degree programs we offer, the MA in Organizational Leadership and the MS in Nonprofit Management.
We are part of a lengthy tradition, guided by the University's focus on faith, reason and justice. Our thousands of graduates are working in nonprofit, for-profit, state, government, and multilateral organizations in the United States and around the world. We have endeavored to build on this history by continuing to craft our programs so that they are academically rigorous, intense, current, rooted in God's Word, and geared towards preparing you for a lifetime of service.
I invite you to peruse this brief description of our programs and to visit our website at www.eastern.edu/sld for more information. We have a team of staff, administration and faculty ready and eager to talk and pray with you as you engage in your process of discernment as to where and how God is calling you in terms of your studies and next steps. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions, and we do hope that you will make the time to visit us!
