Education Leadership, MEd Concentration in Independent School Leadership (non-licensure)
Educational leadership programs have multiple objectives. They aim to develop your interpersonal communication and business management capabilities, impart knowledge of effective education strategies, make you more adept at advocacy and allow you to develop your own approach to leadership.
The Independent School Leadership concentration is a non-licensure path within the Education Leadership program with a focus on the unique leadership and instructional needs of directors, heads of schools, and other professionals responsible for the growth and management of independent and private schools. Like other candidates in the Education Leadership program, students will develop and demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to create and maintain learning environments that value diversity, instructional leadership, innovative and ethical decision-making, reflective practice, and the successful achievement of all students, with an emphasis on the independent school context.
