    The purpose of the School of Education Principals' Academy is to create a forum for dialogue and an exchange of ideas and experiences. Using the university as a catalyst, the academy will provide professional growth opportunities for principals and assistant principals that will focus on dynamic leadership that promotes reflective practice and affects teacher and student learning. Additionally, it will create a network of support for colleagues and establish a collaborative relationship with the university, university faculty, and its resources.
