In addition to EDL’s extensive professional development efforts, faculty working through Centers, Labs and Academies provide professional services to schools, districts, government agencies, consortia, non-profit and private sector corporations in the Commonwealth, nation and globally. The scope of professional service reflects the extensive background and expertise of faculty. In many instances professional services in the form of expert advice are provided at no cost. We are pleased to be extensively engaged with educators, supporting their work in solving problems as well as launching and sustaining innovative practices.
EDL faculty frequently partner with school districts and organizations in preparing external funding proposals. More extensive, long-term projects that involve planning, program development and evaluation often require them to charge reasonable fees to cover costs. The Department of Educational Leadership Studies offers a variety of professional services such as program design, leadership development, school technology and evaluation.
