Research Areas

The Center for Educational Leadership and Policy is the culmination of 15 years of research that began with the rebuilding of relationships with area superintendents through collaboration on a number of initiatives. These earlier steps resulted in funded research, collaboration with the Michigan Department of Education and the major Michigan educational leadership organizations. Another benefit of our research has been the impact on the curriculum and standing of Western Michigan University from a state and national perspective. The center will further enhance the research in educational leadership and policy.
