Dr. Jason Salisbury


Dr. Jason Salisbury, Assistant Professor, Department of Educational Policy Studies; CUEL Faculty Affiliate for Research and Development (Continuous Improvement and Leader Development). Dr. Salisbury is a mixed methods researcher with content expertise related to equity-focused, anti-racist instructional leadership and distributed forms of school leadership that engage teacher leaders and youth in equity-oriented school improvement. His research focuses on anti-racist school leadership practices that support school or team wide usage of culturally relevant and sustaining pedagogies in high schools, how principals and other formal leaders can nurture the transformative leadership capacity of marginalized youth to enact equitable school improvement practices, and why existing equity-minded improvement efforts often fail. Dr. Salisbury’s work is regularly disseminated through CUEL, and he has contributed to CUEL development projects. 

Salisbury teaches in the EdD and PhD programs in the Department of Educational Policy Studies. He teaches in the areas of equity-focused instructional leadership, organizational change/theory, and educational leadership. Dr. Salisbury is a former CPS high school teacher. Dr. Salisbury earned his PhD from UW-Madison in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis.
