Real People. Real Stories. Real Success.

Lisa Dias, Ed.D ‘16

“I chose Rivier because I felt confident that I could be successful. The [Ed.D. in Leadership and Learning] program was designed with flexibility for working adults. Having the mix of online/face-to-face and classes on weekends made it possible to manage having a family, career, and pursuing a degree.”

Linda Brodeur ‘82 B.S., ‘01 M.Ed.

“I choose Rivier because the professors I met were all still working in the field and current in the practice. I was especially interested in a program that was experiential rather than philosophical, as I needed to apply what I learned—almost as I learned it.”
