The purpose of the 2012 UCEA Convention is to engage participants in discussing research, policy, and practice in educational leadership and administration.  This year’s theme recognizes that the field of university-based leadership preparation is contested while the value of leadership preparation is under assault from multiple directions and by multiple stakeholders.
