University Principal Preparation Initiative (UPPI)


The University Preparation Program Initiative is sponsored by the Wallace Foundation. For the seven universities selected by Wallace for redesign, work from the Initiative is projected to foster programmatic advancements by offering support to address critical questions and improve professional practice (Spiro in Young & Spiro, 2016 Webinar). Wallace’s leadership initiative generates reports for wide consumption in line with their mission to “foster improvements in learning and enrichment for disadvantaged children and the vitality of the arts for everyone” (The Wallace Foundation, 2016).

As part of this grant initiative, UCEA will be supporting the seven university sites selected for program redesign.
