About this Course

The program focus is on equity, social justice, and the formation of leadership identity. It supports instructional leadership skill development in working collegially with teachers, parents, students, and the community to improve the quality of teaching and learning. Students develop skills and a vision for culturally responsive leadership and for ensuring equitable, safe schooling environments. They also learn to understand and lead change and school renewal processes and develop skills to define and analyze root causes of conflicts and challenges and create solutions in diverse situations. Research indicates that school leaders need and seek regular, ongoing opportunities to reflect with colleagues on the challenges of leadership, emphasizing that this type of ongoing collegial reflection helps renew efforts to exercise quality leadership, avoid burnout, and renew themselves. The Proseminar creates a community of colleagues that supports continuing this type of interaction on the job.
