About the Principal Leadership Institute

Principal Leadership Institute (PLI) Alumni

PLI has been the ultimate transformational experience for my development as a social justice leader. The theoretical frameworks and discussions around equity and access provided me with resources that I could use immediately. The mentoring and encouragement have been so valuable; I owe my success as an administrator to PLI. I tell every aspiring administrator that there is no other place to do this work, UCLA PLI and nothing else!

My personal experience in PLI not only clarified the systemic issues prevalent in American education, but empowered me with the tools to challenge, disrupt, and work to erase such inequities. In a much broader sense, PLI is improving the profession by creating opportunities where best practices in education are being implemented daily through the collective efforts from its faculty, alumni, and current students.
