"The educational administration and supervision program is based on conceptual framework of the Administrator as a Visionary Practitioner," said Professor Fred Hampton Ph.D. " Graduates acheive outcomes reflecting the five knowledge bases that compose this model: organizational change, relational, developmental, contextual, and ethical. These knowledge bases are applied to the programs within the environments or urban and suburban schools, which are diverse and include students with disabilities."
