Michael G. Morris Endowed Chair
The overall purpose of the 2016-2017 Morris Chair is to improve educational leadership and strengthen this professional field by establishing and doing pilot data work for what might become someday an EMU/COE data analysis center and to bring national leaders here to talk about the future of leadership preparation and how it can be done in ways that are scalable, effective, and efficient. The primary initiatives of the 2017 Morris Chair are:
- Initiative #1: Design and establish an EMU educational data analysis group and future center.
- Initiative #2: Create online micro-credentialing courses in educational leadership with a national/international outreach.
- Initiative #3: Bring in guest speakers to facilitate efforts and act as an academic incubator and resource for scholarship and practice in educational leadership.
- Initiative # 4: Establish an educational leadership data archive through the EMU library.
