Research and Collaboration Opportunities

The Center for Leadership in Education engages thought leaders and students in research on educational leadership.

Students enrolled in the School of Professional and Continuing Studies graduate program in educational leadership and policy studies have a research practicum requirement that enables them to conduct graduate-level research into local, regional, national and international topics related to school leadership.

Dr. Tom Shields and Dr. Kate Cassada, professors of education, conduct and publish research on school leadership.

If you have research needs, or if you are interested in collaborative research efforts with the Center, please contact Kate Cassada, director, at (804) 289-8754 or
