Center for Leadership and Educational Equity


.The mission of the Center is to provide leaders with professional learning and support to create equitable outcomes for students in our schools..

We believe the best way to learn is together and the best way to lead is by example; therefore, our programs engage leaders in professional learning communities that model best practices for staff development in schools. The Center currently runs two such programs for teacher and school leaders, the Principal Residency Network (PRN) and the Learning Leader Network (LLN).
