Learning Outcomes

The Educational Administration program learning outcomes are aligned with the Interstate School Leadership Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) Standards.  The Standards are foundational to all levels of educational leadership, and were redeveloped (and expanded) in 2015 with a stronger, clearer emphasis on students and student learning, outlining foundational principles of leadership to help ensure that each child is well-educated and prepared for the 21st century. The Standards reflect a positive approach to leadership that is optimistic, emphasizes development and strengths, and focuses on human potential.
