The College of Education at Lipscomb University and The Ayers Institute for Teacher Learning and Innovation are excited to announce a newly designed program for current and aspiring educational leaders. The new Educational Leadership program will begin in August 2013, and will be tailored to prepare high caliber candidates to become successful educational leaders at the school, district, or state level. Program participants will follow innovative strands of leadership competencies on their way to earning an Educational Specialist degree and a Tennessee Instructional Leadership License (ILL-B).
A consistent theme of ethical leadership will be woven into all aspects of the Educational Leadership program along with an emphasis in leading student achievement for all students. Leadership strands include Personal and Ethical Leadership, Visionary Leadership, Learning Focused Leadership, and Organizational Leadership. Each strand is built upon researched, best practice leadership competencies in which participants will master and be able to proficiently apply in the field. These competencies will be learned and practiced through an innovative field experience where participants will work directly with a practicing mentor coach throughout the entire program.

Program participants will be chosen from a rigorous application and multi-level interview process that selects high caliber individuals who show talent and skill related to the expected program competencies. Selected applicants will be highly driven individuals who display integrity, professionalism, collaborative skills, and who seek to lead improved student achievement in schools. Once selected, students will be able to complete the program in 17 months through field experiences, weekend meetings, online interaction, and independent study. Upon completion, participants will not only be qualified to serve as a school administrator in Tennessee, they will also possess the necessary skills to be a highly effective, ethical school leader who will drive positive student achievement growth.
