Educators' Leadership Academy
The Educators' Leadership Academy (ELA) is a compass for educators, offering them new direction and perspective through professional and leadership development. ELA knows that the roles of educational professionals are complex, challenging and always evolving.
ELA Compass: Network. Exploration. Strategy. Wisdom.
Our workshop-style approach takes place across extended sessions with a multidisciplinary cohort of professionals. ELA will provide registrants with new and effective concepts to implement. Alumni who have benefited from our unique programs and experts say ELA gave them renewed, fresh energy, ideas and a recentered purpose.
The Educational Administrators' Academy was established in 1998 at UCO. Contact us today to find out how we can develop the leader in you!
