Goal

Working with school districts in our region, the ELP Program faculty shall develop customized services informed Best Practices research to build future leadership capacity and support practicing school leaders.

Note: This is something we would do with you not for you with a focus on growing District Leaders from within your faculty and school leadership groups.

Program Conceptual Framework

The program framework would include possible Instructional II, M.Ed. and Post-M.Ed. Leadership cohorts, or other delivery frameworks of your choosing, co-designed by the school district and Ship.

Opportunity/Partnership Strengths

  • A well-established working relationship between Shippensburg and PDE Leadership
  • A newly created Ed.D. partnership program with Millersville University that requires research on how to overcome the effects of poverty on student performance
  • Shippensburg University’s ELP programs are practitioner driven. All full time faculty are required to have substantial leadership experience in public schools and have earned doctorates from nationally accredited institutions.
  • We also created a  Leadership Fellows program for distinguished practitioners currently working in the field.  These outstanding educators work side by side with our award winning faculty and students.
  • Our programs boast a vast network of Shippensburg Alumni-practicing school leaders in South Central Pennsylvania

We currently have customized collaborations with five school districts in our region.  If you are interested in a collaboration, please contact Dr. Phil Diller at pfdill@ship.edu or Dr. Jerry Fowler at glfowl@ship.edu.
