The Department of Educational Leadership offers the Executive Leadership Program (ELP), which is designed to provide aspiring individuals outstanding preparation for assuming a school superintendency and other central office positions. This cohort-based program is completed within 12-13 months and meets on dates designed to accommodate working professionals. This is a non-degree program that leads to endorsement for the Connecticut 093 (superintendency) certificate. Selected courses are eligible for transfer to UConn’s Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) program with the approval of the student’s advisory committee.
Required Courses: Students must complete the following five three-credit courses, which include a two-semester internship with an experienced ELP Mentor Superintendent: EDLR 6301, 6302, 6303, 6304, and 6092 (both semesters).
This certificate is offered by the Neag School of Education.
