In 2016 the Center for Educational Leadership (CEL) celebrates another milestone — our 15th anniversary. Founded in 2001 as a nonprofit service arm of the University of Washington College of Education, we continue to be dedicated to eliminating the achievement gap that divides our nation’s children along the lines of race, class, language and disability.
To mark the occasion and take a moment to look back, we worked with graphic artist (and teacher) Taryl Hansen to create a visual overview of CEL's last 15 years (see image above).
At the Center for Educational Leadership we partner with courageous leaders in classrooms, schools and the systems that support them to eliminate educational inequities by creating cultures of rigorous teaching, learning and leading. Our vision is transformed schools empowering all students regardless of background to create limitless futures for themselves, their families, their communities, and the world.
