2018 Annual Convention

The 32nd Annual UCEA Convention will be held November 14-18, 2018 at the Marriott Marquis Houston in Houston, TX. The purpose of the 2018 UCEA Convention is to engage participants in discussions about research, policy, practice and preparation in the field of education with a specific focus on educational leadership. Members of the 2018 Convention Program Committee are Terah Venzant Chambers (Michigan State University), Bradley Carpenter (University of Houston), Terrance L. Green (University of Texas at Austin), and Lolita A. Tabron (University of Denver). Also, for the first time, the Program Committee will include a graduate student, Andrene Castro (University of Texas at Austin). The 32nd Annual UCEA Convention theme, Our Mission Critical: Revolutionizing the Future Through Equitable Educational Leadership, Research, and Practice, is inviting submissions that (a) challenge dominant narratives that subvert equitable leadership and education; (b) revolutionize the preparation of school and district leaders to enact equitable leadership, research, and practice; (c) imagine equitable alliances with students, families, and communities where there is shared expertise, decision making, and ownership for sustainable change; and foster coalition with policymakers and elected  officials to create the future we need.
