1 The Principals Summer Institute June 24 30, 2018 Summer Institute for New & Aspiring Principals June 25 29, 2018
2 In the summer of 1992 ACSA and the Principals Center at Harvard Graduate School of Education co-sponsored our first summer institute on the UCLA campus. In 24 years the summer program has been attended by over 21,000 administrators. Our summer programs provide opportunities for administrators to meet in a stimulating and supportive setting to examine crucial school reform topics applicable to their work. Each program is designed to provoke and ultimately foster a life commitment to the calling of teaching and learning. These events are designed to provide participants opportunities to focus their resolve for better practice and improve leadership skills. The programs offer practitioners invaluable days of study reflection and discourse with experts and school leaders who represent the best throughout the educational spectrum. An outstanding faculty has been assembled for each program. Moreover, participants will represent diverse education settings from throughout the state and are practitioners who have much to share and much to gain. Formal and informal learning activities deepen exchange and learning around the leadership challenges confronting today s school leaders. These interactions will enable participants to extend their learning and their support network far beyond the boundaries of these programs. In this brochure, you will find descriptions and applications for each of the exciting summer programs. We invite you to read through the brochure and talk with your colleagues who are alumni to see why spending part of your summer with us at UCLA learning, discussing, laughing and reflecting may be the most important choice you make in your career. Each program has been designed to include: n Opportunities to interact with leading researchers in educational administration, a unique opportunity to get beyond the text and ask questions of researchers whose work you have read and studied; n Small ongoing discussion groups of educators who have a common base of experience, while at the same time divergent viewpoints, with whom you can dialogue on the theories presented by the researchers and identify the practical applications you can use immediately; n Time for individual reflection, often through journal writing, to consider how this can apply to your school setting and your leadership style; an opportunity to build a network of fellow administrators who face the same daily challenges as you and whom you know well enough to call upon whenever you need support and advice.

6 Summer InstiTute FoR new & AsPiriNG PrincipaLs June 25 29, 2018 The Summer Institute for New & Aspiring Principals will be focused upon development of The 21st Century Site Leader. We expect to have a full colloquium this year with just the right mix of aspiring, new, both elementary and secondary principals! Never before has there been a time of change such as what we are experiencing right now. As participants learn throughout the week, reflective time will be spent on our focus of the week: Becoming an Authentic Leader: Ready to Connect, Ready to Lead, and Ready for Change. Leadership development is the process of self-invention which is directly linked to the creation of personal authenticity. The week is designed to take participants through a series of reflective exercises to identify not only who they are as leaders, but who they want to be as a leader with all the responsibilities and accountability of today s principals. In the end, every participant will leave with a plan to get there.
