Teacher Leadership for Equity and Social Justice Certificate

The Teacher Leadership for Equity and Social Justice Certificate prepares teachers to be agents of change for equity and social justice, effective mentors for early career colleagues, and advocates for the educational success of all students.

The certificate aims to prepare teachers to engage effectively with others to improve instruction, promote equity, and engage as a change agent related to the social justice responsibilities of public schools. It may also be used by teachers interested in becoming mentors in their fields for early career colleagues and in other professional development contexts. In addition, it will help prepare teachers to help their schools provide equitable opportunities and outcomes for students who may have experienced barriers based on their race, ethnicity, gender, social class, sexual orientation, gender identity, first language, or another element of their social identity.
