Educational Leadership Program (ELP)

The UCLA Educational Leadership Program (ELP) is committed to promoting innovative and change-oriented educational leaders. We fully embrace the public service mission of UCLA as a leading public research university and the social justice vision of the UCLA School of Education and Information Studies. Our program combines a commitment to urban leadership development and creating equitable and accessible PreK-16 opportunities. We strive for student-focused teaching and learning centered around racial equity and cultural competence.
