Michael G. Morris Endowed Chair
An important partner in this project will be The National Council of Professors of Educational Administration (NCPEA). NCPEA “is committed to the practice and study of educational administration.” The NCPEA board has approved the concept of a leadership center as a way to extend the definition of leadership that goes beyond standards and a rational/behavior perspective about leadership practice. The Data Institute will be the Eastern Michigan University umbrella that will generate and disseminate knowledge about research, scholarship, and practice about school leadership. The data group will initially focus on issues that will help launch a center for educational leadership at EMU but will become a resource for the EMU campus interested in using data sets to generate data for research and scholarship.
