Master of Education Aloha ʻĀina Education and Leadership

The MEd-CS Aloha ʻĀina Education and Leadership track is a 30-credit track for Aloha ʻĀina educators and leaders.

The cohort focuses on Aloha ʻĀina (Love for homeland, patriotism) as a foundation for relationships, education, leadership, well-being, and research in Hawaiʻi. Participating educators will critically engage with Aloha ʻĀina in various contexts to help them better understand, articulate, and respond to their kuleana to ʻāina and Lāhui. Aloha ʻĀina professors will work with participating educators to develop an interdisciplinary MEd-CS degree program specifically designed to help them address the needs, goals, and aspirations of their school, district, and/or community. We will collaborate with educators to set cohort goals and objectives; develop a program schedule; select courses; develop activities and experiences; and design a Plan B project.
