Educators are drawn to the Educational Leadership Program by the opportunity to participate in a dynamic cohort of individuals who work in many segments of the educational continuum. Together the cohort develops and applies new connections between research, leadership principles and technology to improve educational practices. Students work with accomplished researchers and practitioners to improve their own leadership and practice.
