Call for Proposals

The 34th annual UCEA Convention will be held November 18-22, 2020 at the Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel & Casino in San Juan, Puerto Rico. 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 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.
