“My research highlights the importance of fostering inclusive college classrooms to ensure that all students are participants in the shared teaching and learning, in any modality,” Loya explained, and then talked about her work in more detail.
“The Academic Minute” is broadcast on NPR stations around the country and can also be streamed online. The two-and-a-half-minute daily module features researchers from colleges and universities around the world discussing groundbreaking research and how it helps us better understand the world around us.
Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership
Loya teaches in the Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership (EdD) program, which specializes in higher education leadership. The program draws students with diverse life experiences, and graduates have achieved success in a broad range of fields– including senior leadership at universities and community colleges, high-ranking positions in state departments of education, chairs of academic departments ranging from music to nursing, and leadership roles in campus health and safety.
The program serves the needs of working professionals, with many courses offered online or in a hybrid format. The cohort structure provides a built-in support network for students as they advance through the program together.
The EdD program is currently admitting students for the next cohort beginning in June 2022. More information about the program is available here.
