Members of the 2019 Convention Program Committee are Gerardo R. López (University of Utah), Erica Fernández (University of Connecticut), Frank Hernández (Southern Methodist University), and Kevin Lawrence Henry, Jr. (University of Arizona).
The 33rd Annual UCEA Convention theme, Where y’at: Validating subaltern forms of leadership and learning with/in and outside of schools, aims to center a broad array of knowledges, discourses, practices, experiences, epistemologies, and ways of knowing that historically have been marginalized, downplayed, and/or rendered invisible in the larger field of educational leadership.
The Call for Proposals includes a discussion of the convention theme, strategies for developing submissions to address the convention theme, description of convention session types, submission guidelines and criteria for review.
