Program: Urban Education Leaders Collaborative
The Urban Education Leaders Collaborative (UELC) at Teachers College identifies, examines, and generates realistic responses to compelling problems facing urban education leaders. Participants engage in live interactions with national thought leaders and experience multimedia learning facilitated by Teachers College leaders. UELC brings together new and aspiring urban education leaders and national thought leaders to define problems, review relevant research and data, and work collaboratively through simulated case studies. In this way, participants can return to their respective communities better prepared, more energized, and more motivated to address critical issues.
