Administrative Services Credential Clear Induction Program
The mission of the Department of Educational Leadership is to prepare bold, socially responsible leaders who will transform the world of schooling. Students examine social, cultural and linguistic issues linked to larger equity and social justice challenges. The program’s central role is to help build the leadership capacity needed to create vital, democractic, professional learning communities for equitable learning and teaching.

Various positions include those in school site administration (e.g., principal, vice principal), and district-level administration (e.g., curriculum coordinator, staff development coordinator, special programs coordinator, human resources, assistant superintendent, and superintendent, among others). In addition, graduates also obtain many positions at county and state-wide public education offices.
