Programs and Services

PCEL is committed to building leadership capacity to support student and educational learning and development.

The Penn Center for Educational Leadership (PCEL) advances leadership principles, practices, and knowledge so that educators develop their capacity to reflect on practice, guide effective change, and lead programmatic excellence.

We apply the resources of Penn GSE to collaborate with school districts, schools, and other organizations to enhance their leadership capacity. We facilitate collaborative administrator and district team learning experiences at Penn and throughout the region that are grounded in emerging research in effective educational leadership, teaching, student learning, and organizational change. In addition to the "core services" of the PCEL programs, the Center strives to respond to the individual needs of districts for other various types of training and techinical assistance.

PCEL delivers a coordinated and customized set of leadership and instructional development programs, services, and activities, including professional development, training, and executive recruitment services. To learn more about each program and service, please use the links on the left.
