Urban Education Leaders Program
Department of Organization and Leadership
Welcome to Teachers College Columbia University Urban Education Leaders Program. There has never been a more exciting time in the field of educational leadership. On a number of fronts, racial disparity, economic inequality and gender discrimination must be overcome in order to insure the education of the masses in this country and around the world. Now, more than ever, well-trained public school leaders are needed to meet these challenges. Through innovative teaching and research, the faculty prepares students to be at the forefront of change in a variety of positions within urban public education.
