Educational Leadership Certificate Program Overview

New Educational Challenges - New Opportunities

Today’s educators are required to be mentors, guides and leaders within classrooms that are creative and comfortable learning spaces. Educational administrators must focus on hiring, developing and retaining the best educators for this new environment. Ongoing and updated professional development remains a critical success factor, not just for teachers, but for leaders as well.

An Educational Leadership Certificate from the School of Professional Studies empowers educators and administrators at all levels to embrace and capitalize on these educational trends. The program is designed to advance careers and increase earning potential.
