After earning my master’s degree from Olivet Nazarene University in 2002, I had a sense that there were some capabilities still dormant within me,” says Dr. Michael Morris. “I believed that the challenges and rigors of ONU’s Ed.D. program would unearth those. And that is exactly what happened for me."   - Michael Morris, M.Min. ’02/Ed.D. ’17

"I learned what leadership looks like in many fields as an Ed.D. student at Olivet Nazarene University. My dissertation  was narrowed into my field of special education. But in my cohort, I learned from a nurse practitioner, a police officer, a detective, a higher education executive, a school principal and others about how to lead wherever I am."   - Hayden Lewis, Ed.D. ’21
