Urban School Leadership Graduate Certificate

The Urban School Leadership Graduate Certificate Program has been developed for critical, and reflective educators seeking to improve urban schools through research and practice. While focusing on urban school issues, this program will prepare educators who represent a variety of backgrounds, who support equity and diversity in all its forms and who strive to contribute to the public good and a more socially just world. Course work in this certificate program will challenge students to consider the effects of race, class, and culture on a learning community; examine the beliefs, cultural shifts, and instructional strategies needed to promote high student achievement; learn effective practices for closing achievement gaps and creating a more inclusive learning environment. Additional topics that will be covered are race, culture and equity in urban educational leadership and strategic improvements of urban schools. Students will engage in rigorous academic work with on-going practice-based opportunities, including real-world case studies and simulations.  For more information contact Kriss Kemp-Graham at kriss.kemp-graham@tamuc.edu.
