Advanced Certificate

Educational Leadership

Awarded National Recognition by the Educational Leadership Constituent Council (ELLC), the Advanced Certificate is a five semester, 30-credit program designed for educators who are preparing for entry-level leadership positions in public schools. The program qualifies students for the New York State certification as School Building Leader (SBL) and School District Leader (SDL). The goal of the program is to prepare creative, flexible, visionary and reflective leaders with the skills necessary to facilitate and improve the quality of learning for all students. Towards this end, students complete the required sequence of courses as a learning community and engage in class and field-based experiential learning projects designed to develop important leadership skills. In addition to course work, administrative candidates complete three semesters of supervised internships in multiple settings, tailored to individual career objectives.
