Educational Policy & Leadership Program Information

Ready to meet your leadership potential?

The Educational Policy & Leadership programs at the UNLV College of Education prepare future school leaders and develop current leaders to meet the challenges they will face in Southern Nevada PK-12 schools in the 21st century. Using a systems approach to understanding leadership, the curriculum combines rigorous and relevant coursework with real-world experiential learning.

Designed to develop and strengthen educational leaders who understand the urban environment and the community in which schools exist, program participants receive a firm foundation of knowledge and skills in order to meet the demands and expectations of school administrators – all within a systems approach for transforming schools within an urban community.

Programs are grounded in the belief that PK-12 educational leaders must work alongside other community institutions, including government agencies, non-profit organizations, and business and industry, for the well-being of our community’s students and families. Twenty-first century urban education leaders must understand the full array of challenges and the interactive and systemic nature of the institutions and organizations they serve.

These programs also meet the requirements for Nevada School Administrator Endorsement and the Nevada Program Administrator Endorsement.
