The Penn Center for Educational Leadership is committed to building leadership capacity to support student and educational learning and development.

PCEL advances leadership principles, practices and knowledge so that educators develop their capacity to reflect on practice, guide effective change, and lead programmatic excellence. To impact high achievement for all students, we provide educational leaders (administrators, teachers, students and the community) with quality evidence-based instructional strategies, and effective leadership and management practices. We engage the community and the public in education through public deliberation and community outreach.
