Carol Mullen, 2012-2013 NCPEA President

In Dr. Carol Mullen’s elected role of President of the National Council of Professors of Educational Administration (NCPEA), her vision is to highlight issues of educational leadership with respect to innovation, inventiveness, and the imagination as we work together as global leaders of social justice. Dr. Mullen is building on past-president Dr. Fenwick English’s groundbreaking leadership and initiatives this last year in many areas, especially with respect to diversifying and expanding the organization. He is a professor in educational leadership at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

NCPEA is a collaborative, friendly scholar-practitioner organization committed to the practice and study of educational administration. Established in 1947, NCPEA has a strong commitment to serve the interests and needs of professors of educational administration and practicing school leaders in such areas as equity, inclusion, innovation, and excellence. For more information about the organization's August 2013 conference in New Jersey and other exciting initiatives, check out the NCPEA website: http://www.emich.edu/ncpeaprofessors.
