Vision Statement The School of Applied Leadership aspires to be a local and global catalyst for leadership conversation, education, and innovation.
Mission The School of Applied Leadership empowers learners to become intentional and inspired leaders who integrate innovative ideas and proven practices with theory, reflection, and critical analysis. We harness the power of collective intelligence to achieve high performance and active engagement through collaboration and data-driven decision-making.
Our Values The School of Applied Leadership values excellence, resilience, authenticity, innovation, and diplomacy.
The School of Applied Leadership provides working professionals with training and educational opportunities, available entirely online.
In 2011, CityU began offering students a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Leadership to help executives, educators, and administrators develop advanced skills in strategic analysis, change management, international education and organizational development. Students can focus in educational leadership (P-12), higher education, nonprofit leadership, organizational leadership or create a specialized study. Graduates from this program will be well-equipped to assume senior leadership positions in organizations, universities, or public school systems.
The School of Applied Leadership also has a long running Master of Arts in Leadership program and a newer Master of Education in Adult Education. Both programs offer students online options to get a degree that can help them advance in their career or to start a new one.

Building bridges has been a hallmark of Greg’s professional work history. He believes a stable work environment produces the most productive results, focusing more on achieving a sustainable result than on completing an immediate challenge. A guiding instructional philosophy for Greg, whether teaching in-class, online, or in a workshop, is working hard to communicate specific learning objects in small, understandable chunks that build knowledge over time. His work history has allowed him to see this approach in action with great success.
In private industry, Greg has served as Director for a training organization in Tokyo, Japan, a publisher for a Seattle-based regional publishing company, an owner in a remodeling business, and three years in leadership roles in the Bering Sea fishing grounds. He earned his BA in Economics from the University of Washington, his MBA from the University of Phoenix, and he is presently a Doctoral Candidate earning a Doctor of Education degree with an emphasis in Organizational Leadership at City University of Seattle.
Hi everyone, I am Dr. Pressley Rankin and I handle student support for the School of Applied Leadership.
My job here at CityU is to help you. It’s that simple. I was hired to make sure you have all the resources you need to complete this program successfully. My job is not only to connect you to all the great resources we have at CityU, but to also share information about other resources, including writing tools, developments in our field, networking opportunities, and scholarship opportunities.
In addition, I am here to listen. My job is to understand your experience and help you with that. So you can call me, text me, Skype me, or schedule a time to meet if you have any issues you want to talk about. This can include work-related problems, school issues, questions, life events, or even good things you have accomplished and want to brag about. My goal is to create a community. I want to create opportunities for you all to get to know each other and the faculty on a more social level. I will be providing student updates, tips-for-success, and opportunities for ongoing engagement with each other and the doctoral faculty.
