The University of Houston-Clear Lake, with its alumni footprint throughout Texas and especially the Houston area, provides its graduates not only with a state-recognized high-quality preparation program, but also with the networking capacity to find mentors and colleagues who share and understand the expectations of great leaders. In schools from Sealy to Beaumont, from Galveston to Conroe, you will find UHCL alumni in educational leadership positions who are very willing to support your professional goals. With their support and the support of others, your efforts as a candidate will reward you with the position you seek. Imagine having the benefits of academic and fieldwork experiences that provide you with the professional understanding of the “right things” and the evidence that shows you’ve done them.
There is an ongoing need for educational leaders who possess the attitudes and aptitudes to address the many challenges related to leadership that address cultural diversity, equity, and democracy. The specialization in Social Justice, when added to the Master of Science in Educational Management and Principal as Instructional Leader Certification, can provide candidates with not only an edge in the competitive job market, but also a deeper understanding of the practices inherent in addressing the structures and norms that result in inequitable education and knowledge of the importance of the advocacy role that leaders must take to influence policy. This program is available in hybrid and online formats.
