Emerging Leaders

A program for aspiring K-12 principals...

Emerging Leaders ProgramFor nearly two decades, MSU’s Emerging Leaders Program has been providing potential school principals an opportunity to explore in detail the knowledge, skillsets and mindsets required to be a successful leader in today’s complex educational environments. This intimate three-day residential experience connects emerging educational leaders with highly successful assistant principals, principals and superintendents. Together, they explore the joys and challenges inherent in the principalship.

Interactive exploration topics include:

  • Personal Temperament: Implications for Your Role as a Principal
  • Communication: Problems, Priorities and Strategies for New Principals
  • A Balanced Life: Family, Fun and the Principalship
  • Instructional Leadership: A Day in the Life of the Principal
  • The Secrets of Getting Hired: Preparing Yourself and Your Resume
  • Getting a Job: Mock Interviews for the Principalship


There will be no 2017 program.
