ELPS Mission and Strategies
The mission of the Department of Educational Leadership & Policy Studies (ELPS) is to prepare ethically centered scholar-practitioners committed to leadership for justice and equity in education.
The department has set four core strategies that guide and prioritize our work:
In ALL aspects of our research, teaching and service, we will keep central and work to fully include and integrate the unique strengths and experiences we each bring into our daily practices.
We will partner with our communities to steward resources toward collectively prioritized, asset-focused outcomes.
We will engage in transformative transdisciplinary research that has substantial scientific, social and educational impacts.
We will maximize student learning and success through the design and delivery of empirically-based programs grounded in culturally relevant pedagogy and practice.
