The Center supports the EdD Program in Urban Education Leadership at UIC.
The EdD Program in Urban Education Leadership at UIC seeks to prepare dynamic school leaders to transform high-needs schools. The Center supports the EdD program in a number of ways:
Research: the Center documents what makes the EdD program’s model of principal preparation particularly successful for high-needs school settings
Policy: the Center advocates for the EdD program model with local, state and national lawmakers
Training: the Center’s leadership coaches develop leadership skills through extensive one-on-one coaching with EdD program candidates, many of whom are working as assistant principals and principals, and program alumni leading schools.
