Grand Valley has launched a master's degree program in educational leadership through its Traverse City Regional Center.

Shannon Owen, director of the regional center, said expanding to Traverse City centralizes the program that had previously been available in Boyne City and Cadillac. 

Classes in Traverse City are offered at the University Center at Northwestern Michigan College, 2200 Dendrinos Drive. 

While the fall semester has started, people who are interested in enrolling in the program can register for EDL 665, Educational Leadership, that begins October 21.

Cathy Meyer-Looze, assistant professor of education, said the program's curriculum is ideal for people who are interested in moving into K-12 administration as a curriculum director or building principal. Meyer-Looze said the program offers emphasis areas in educational leadership and special education administration.

Classes are flexible, including evenings and weekends, and offered face-to-face and online. For more information, visit www.gvsu.edu/traverse or call (231) 995-1785.
