Lehigh Launches a Community School Partnership

This is a regional partnership of educational institutions, led by the School District of Philadelphia, to launch the Philadelphia School Leadership Program. Lehigh University, the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), and Temple University are also partners in the unique initiative. Over the course of five years, the program will educate and train 60 upcoming school leaders in the city’s lowest achieving, urban public high schools.

The Center for Educating Urban Educational Leaders (CDUEL) is dedicated to conducting rigorous research and developing exemplary school leaders to produce high quality schooling experience for urban children across America. CDUEL was founded in October 2006 with the generous support of Peter Bennett ’63.

Since its inception, CDUEL has persistently been working toward its commitment to improve urban schools and close the achievement gap between low-income urban students and their middle class peers by selecting, educating, and placing passionate competent urban school leaders.
