What Do We Know About Program Supply, Demand and Capacity?

November 26th, 2018 by


In a recent report from UCEA, seven scholars explore the issue of program supply demand and capacity. The continued growth in program development and degree production in educational leadership raises a number of questions: Is supply exceeding demand, and if so, by how much? Is the supply of licensed leadership aspirants more diverse than in the past? Do these programs have equal capacity to offer high-quality programs, and if not, what kind of capacity is needed to offer a high-quality program?

These are important questions, and as a field we need more information about the quantity, capacity, and productiveness of existing educational leadership programs. This report focuses on program growth, program capacity, and degree production in university educational leadership preparation, the ways that programs and the granting of degrees have changed over the past 10 years, and how these changes may relate to state-level labor market needs.
