Welcome to the Department of Leadership, Higher & Adult Education

The Department of Leadership, Higher & Adult Education (LHAE) at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education is a dynamic and inclusive learning community comprised of scholars focused on educational leadership and administration, policy and change, social justice and community engagement. 

Our department considers education broadly, as it occurs inside and outside of formal educational settings. Our courses and programs consider relations between different social settings, such as families, workplaces, local communities, and national and international contexts.

Themes running through our research and teaching include equity and social justice, professional education, policy studies, educational leadership and organizations and adult learning within institutions and settings.

Applications for the 2024-2025 admissions cycle are now closed.

I chose LHAE because I believed they would provide the most comprehensive learning experience for me. Of course, all these beliefs were realized. I also became connected to wonderful people with beautiful ideas.
