Masters of Arts in Educational Leadership: Program Director’s Welcome


Welcome to the Mount Union Master of Arts in Educational Leadership (MAEL) Program.

Mandy Capel

Our MAEL program is designed to develop confident leaders in the field of education and beyond. Within our two-year program, we assist candidates in meeting the challenges of creating highly-effective learning communities that promote meaningful and effective change in local, national and global environments.

As an alumna, faculty member, and program director at Mount Union, I can assure you that our Mount Union faculty and programming are second to none. The MAEL program is an online program that prides itself with meaningful interactions between program candidates, faculty, and internship mentors. Our curriculum is modernized and relevant to the field. Our yearlong internship is designed to provide an in-depth understanding in a practical format, and adhere to the demands and challenges of a working professional. Our candidates greatly benefit from the faculty’s diverse approach to leadership policy and practice and our candidate’s diverse work experience.

The decision to pursue a master’s degree in educational leadership takes passion, dedication, and desire for foundational advancement in leadership and organizational change. This humbling and ambitious path will lead to opportunities in a building or district-wide position and make an impactful difference in the lives of students and teachers.

Please let me know if I can assist you as you work to reach your goal of entering the Mount Union Master of Arts in Educational Leadership Program. Best wishes to you as you pursue your career aspirations in the field of education.
