Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership Launched Summer 2016

"Working together to develop the leaders our schools need and deserve"

The launch of the Collaborative Online Doctorate in Educational Leadership (CODEL) program was in June 2016.  This new Ed.D. program is a joint effort by CSU Channel Islands and CSU Fresno, and the first online offering of a doctoral program in the CSU system.  The CODEL program is dedicated to enriching and supporting leaders who are devoting their lives to social justice and democracy in and through education. The program initially has two options for specialization with possible others planned for the future: (1) P-12 Educational Leadership and (2) Post-secondary Educational Leadership (including community college leadership and administration).  For further information, please contact Dr. Gary W. Kinsey at

CODEL Core Courses (Required for both specializations) - 27 units
