Call for Proposals

The 34th Annual UCEA Convention will now be held virtually in November 2020. The purpose of the 2020 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 2020 Convention Program Committee include Bill Black (University of South Florida), Yanira Oliveras Ortiz (The University of Texas at Tyler), Rosa L. Rivera-McCutchen (Lehman College CUNY), and James Wright (San Diego State University).


The Executive Committee has extended the Convention Proposal and the Graduate Student Summit deadlines to 11:59 PM PDT on Sunday, June 21. 


The convention theme, Re/Building Home: Coloniality, Belonging, and Educational Leadership aims to highlight critical discourses around knowledge production and the control of knowledge. Additionally, the theme highlights concepts of belonging relative to our institutional, disciplinary, and personal homes—nations, ethnicities, and identities—and these relationships within educational leadership.
