Antioch aspires to be a leading university offering learners and communities transformative education in a global context that fosters innovation and inspires social action. In radical recognition of our mission and purpose, we pledge to engage in ongoing development as a wholly inclusive community actively. To this end, we will consistently, deliberately, and systematically strive to be appropriately responsive to the myriad dimensions of human diversity, such that none are marginalized and all experience justice and empowerment. Moving beyond tolerance toward inclusion and the celebration of our differences, we will courageously embrace any resulting challenges as they arise, recognizing that the responsibility for this rests with every member of the community. We assert that we will move expeditiously toward our goals through an ongoing commitment to courageous self‐examination and respectful and honest interactions, which will lead us to the creation of formal and informal structures, policies, programs, and services that will give life to these ideals on our campuses and as we touch the world around us. The Graduate School of Leadership and Change admissions team is here to help answer any of your questions and guide you in the exploration of whether our doctoral journey matches your educational goals. We pride ourselves on personalized attention from our first contact, so please do not hesitate to reach out anytime if you have questions about the program, the application process, or our learning community. Our approach to experiential learning extends beyond the confines of the traditional classroom. Many students come equipped with previous accomplishments and life experiences that we consider when evaluating how best to serve them and you. At Antioch, you will learn skills, knowledge, and techniques that are directly translatable to your field. We believe hands-on learning, internships, and other experiences outside of the classroom, are vital to personal and professional growth. Our admissions process focuses holistically on your life experience, considering the possibility you may be returning to formal education after many years. Using a system of Prior Learning Credits, interviews, references, and essays, we take into account all of your applied knowledge and experiences. At Antioch University’s admissions department, your lived and earned knowledge is a valuable asset. You do not work in a silo, so you should not learn in one either. Our collaborative environments emphasize learning through meaningful interactions with other adult learners. This stimulating environment further encourages challenging the status quo through group discussion and analysis. It also introduces and enhances invaluable leadership and management skills that apply to any workplace. Some of our students are returning, adult learners, and some of our students are finishing their education. Everyone around you at Antioch is here with one common goal: to better themselves through higher education. By working with and alongside peers on a similar life path, you can collaborate with other students who take learning seriously. This creates a supportive and engaging environment, with the added benefit of networking with like-minded individuals in your field. Intimate classes and professors who care about their students are part of the DNA at Antioch University. Our faculty are responsive, knowledgeable, and ready to help you throughout your studies. Individualized attention allows you to build outstanding rapports with professors trained to adapt to each individual’s learning style. This close relationship is often beneficial beyond graduation as you continue down your career path with the support of a lifelong mentor. We recognize that it is not possible to put life on hold while you go back to school. By offering personalized course structure and a robust selection of online and low residency programs, you will be able to find a degree that fits your busy schedule and gives you the learning outcomes you need to succeed.
