The Allentown Principal Leadership Initiative (APLI) unites multiple institutions to increase student achievement in the Allentown School District by developing 14 aspiring and 50 practicing school leaders to serve as instructional leaders with strong transformational and entrepreneurial leadership skills.

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.
