Teacher Leader Graduate Program

The Department of Teacher Development houses the Teacher Leader Graduate Certificate Program, which provides graduate level specialized study in the area of leadership. It is a multidisciplinary cohort program providing knowledge and skills that could be utilized in numerous educational settings and in a variety of roles.

Course outcomes will be aligned to the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) and participants will develop portfolio components that may be used toward NBPTS certification.

The Teacher Leader Graduate Certificate Program may be a stand-alone program or may be applied toward a master’s degree program. The Teacher Leader Graduate Certificate could also complement other graduate majors in the College of Education. Individuals who have a master’s degree or who currently are enrolled in a master’s degree program have an option to supplement their graduate work with the Teacher Leader Graduate Certificate.

Instructors for the six courses in the Teacher Leader Graduate Certificate Program will meet prior to the initiation of the program and collaborate on course content to insure that the designated performance areas, criteria and descriptors are met. The expertise and individual needs of cohort members will also be considered during their collaborative planning sessions.
