The Scholar-Practitioner at Fielding: Leadership for Individual and Social Transformation

In the School of Leadership Studies, students learn theory, engage in research, and create new knowledge to shed light on today’s most pressing issues. Our school offers students the opportunity to become effective change agents. Recognizing the interconnections between individual, educational, organizational, and community development, we take a systemic, multidisciplinary approach to the study and practice of leadership.

Transform Educational, Organizational, & Social Systems

Our school offers access to a global community of scholar-practitioners, learning together at a distance, online, and in-person at academic sessions held in North America and across the globe. With the support of mentoring faculty, students master a rigorous, personalized curriculum, while building a deep sense of community and shared learning.
