Support the EdD Program

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.
