Educational Leadership for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
The purpose of the Educational Leadership and Cultural Foundations Critical Conversations (ELCCC) is to create dialogues to address the current socio-political climate in the United States. A central goal of the conversations is for participants to walk away with a set of pedagogical tools to use in their practice and daily lives. We seek to extend these critical conversations with faculty, students, teachers, educational leaders, and other community members who are interested in having a positive impact on the world.
