Develop Knowledge and Approaches to Serve as a Leader in Your Community

This community would be of interest to those in, or working to be in, positions of leadership. These positions might be formal (superintendent, principal) or informal. Leadership requires multi-faceted knowledge and skills and our curriculum responds to that need. Our emphasis is on thoughtful and effective leaders who can solve complex problems of practice. The program and its learning community format prepares individuals to be effective leaders in their organizations who can work with stakeholders to implement innovative programs. Individuals also prepare to be change agents responsive to issues of social justice within their organizations.
