Since 1933, Wilkes has been preparing students for lifelong success. National rankings recognize our commitment to access and making a Wilkes education as affordable as possible, while highlighting our ongoing return on investment for graduates.
Wilkes offers programs at the undergraduate, master’s and doctoral levels in the close mentoring environment of a small college, but provided by a full-scale University. Faculty members work side by side with students in pursuit of solutions to the most pressing questions of our day.
In the Doctoral Program for Educational Leadership, we encourage creative scholarly activities, forward-thinking ideas, and sustainable practices. The doctoral degree is a residency-based program that maximizes online learning with face-to face annual residencies. We embrace our differences and collaborate with mutual respect in the U.S., Dubai, New Delhi, and Bali at our annual 4-day doctoral residency. Our unique and cutting edge international doctoral program delivers a curriculum that includes courses like Safety and Social-Emotional Learning for Leaders and Cybersecurity for Educational Leaders. You will find yourself in a community of like-minded peers with a variety of backgrounds, interests and cultures who can attest to the value of a Wilkes Education.
In the United States, alone, Wilkes is a positive force for economic, social and cultural development in the region. We contribute 2,300 jobs and over $250 million in impact to Pennsylvania’s economy, as well as more than 120,000 annual hours of hands-on community service by students, faculty and staff.
