UCEA Membership Granted to EDL and COE

The EDL Department and the College of Education have been granted membership within the University Council of Educational Administration (UCEA). UCEA is a consortium of higher education institutions committed to advancing the preparation and practice of educational leaders for the benefit of schools and children. The Council fulfills this purpose by:
  • Promoting, sponsoring, and disseminating research on the essential problems of schooling and leadership practice;
  • Improving the preparation and professional development of educational leaders and professors; and,
  • Positively influencing local, state, and national educational policy.
UCEA has a rich history, originally founded more than 50 years ago by 15 universities, the Kellogg Foundation, and the regional Centers for Educational Administration. Founding members recognized the need for inter-university collaboration to build a knowledge base of research and effective practice for the field of educational administration. Today, UCEA has become a collective of top research institutions with programs in educational leadership and policy and the leading professional organization for professors of educational leadership and policy. San Diego State is the 94th institution nationally to be granted membership in UCEA. Also, SDSU is the only university in California that is a current member of this distinguished organization.
