Olivet Nazarene University and MidAmerica Nazarene University announce a collaborative partnership to offer a Doctor of Education in Ethical Leadership degree program on the MNU campus in Olathe, Kan. Through the agreement, associates of MNU and qualified applicants throughout the surrounding region will gain convenient access to this challenging, three-year doctoral program that is designed to meet the needs of today’s leaders, regardless of their chosen career fields.

“When it comes to the demand for ethical leaders, there are no geographical boundaries,” said Dr. John C. Bowling, president of Olivet. “We have always had an outstanding relationship with our colleagues at MidAmerica Nazarene University, and so we are thrilled to enter into this collaboration.”

“This partnership represents an exciting and innovative way to offer new opportunities to our students,” said Dr. David J. Spittal, president of MNU. “The core values of both institutions are consistent, and our mutual desire is to deliver high quality programs and excellence in all we do.”

Doctoral students will complete the program through a hybrid format. On-ground courses will take place on the MNU campus one Saturday each month, August through May. Students will also attend three weeklong learning intensives — one week each summer of the program — held on Olivet’s campus in Bourbonnais, Ill.

“The Ed.D. is focused on helping leaders become transformational leaders who integrate and apply ethical vision and leadership skills into ethical leadership. The concurrent design of the program enables a learner to complete all of the coursework and dissertation in three years,” said Dr. Houston Thompson, dean of Olivet’s School of Professional Studies and director of the Ed.D. program.

Ed.D. students will be enrolled through Olivet Nazarene University, and will receive their degrees under Olivet’s authority and accreditation agreements.
