"Leadership for Learning for All Students"
The programs emphasize the development of knowledge, skills and dispositions to support leadership for learning for all students. The program is designed with courses offered under the general themes of individual socialization, instructional leadership, and integrative leadership clusters. Course work emphasizes the development of knowledge and skills in the seven state administrator standards, with a strong instructional leadership focus. Students receive training in data-based decision-making, resource reallocation, instructional and cultural leadership, professional development and evaluation, and legal aspects of administrative practice. Students develop a portfolio of their work throughout the program that is used formatively to help shape learning opportunities, and summatively to assess readiness for administrative work.
Graduates of the program serve as administrators in public and private schools throughout the state in diverse settings. They also serve in state and national leadership roles to strengthen and enhance learning outcomes for all students.
