Program Description: The purpose of the Center of Pedagogy Leadership Associates Program is to work toward developing a critical mass of leaders from the public schools, from the arts and sciences, and from teacher education who understand and are committed to the goals of simultaneous renewal of schools and to the education of educators.
Leadership Associates will work to deepen their understanding of the moral dimensions of teaching—stewardship, access, nurturing pedagogy, and democracy—and to collaborate with P-12 faculty and administrators and university education and arts/science faculty toward the renewal of schools and the preparation of educators. We will examine our roles in our respective institutions to become more effective agents for change, and propose and undertake an inquiry project to work towards these ends.
The Leadership Associates program will be held from July 10-14, 2017 on the campus of Montclair State University. Applications are now available for the 2017 program.
The compensation for full participation in the program during the summer and academic year will be $600 per participant. In addition, all educational materials and food (light breakfast and full lunch) will be provided.
Participants will be selected for the program by a screening committee and great efforts will be made to achieve a balance among faculty and administrators from the university and the public schools. Every attempt will be made to achieve as wide a district representation as possible. Administrator/teacher teams are encouraged to apply.
