Info Sessions & Workshops for Prospective Students

Info Sessions

The UCLA Principal Leadership Institute (PLI) information sessions are a great opportunity to get to know the program in detail. Alumni from past cohorts share their experience and answer questions from potential applicants. We also discuss the application process, tuition fees and PLI scholarships.

These info sessions are for prospective students interested in applying for the 2023-2024 academic year. Please register for the sessions.

Upcoming Events

Our children need empowered advocates. PLI takes educators with a desire to serve the community and supercharges them with knowledge from dynamic professors, authentic social justice leadership examples, and a lifelong support system from both the University and like-minded colleagues. The program has deepened my ability to recognize and act in the face of inequities as both an educator and mother. I am forever grateful to PLI for transforming me into a wiser and more effective champion for all children.”
