Educational Leadership

Program Advisers and Faculty


Dr. Gary Bigham serves as the program chair and director of the superintendent certification program. Dr. Ray Barbosa is the director of the M.Ed. and principal certification programs. For advising needs, superintendent and doctoral candidates should conduct all communications with Dr. Bigham. Similarly, M.Ed. and principal candidates should conduct all communications with Dr. Barbosa. 

Note that prior to and during the Fall 2018 semester, Dr. Barbosa is transitioning into the M.Ed. / principal certification directorship and many of Dr. Bigham's advisees will be transitioned to Dr. Barbosa. Consequently, some "cross-communication" may have to occur with both Drs. Bigham and Barbosa until all transitions are finalized.

When corresponding with your adviser via email, always include your Buff ID number.
