Instructional Leadership in Action

Nominate an Aspiring Leader for the Danforth Program

by UWCEL on Jan 7, 2016


Many principals and superintendents can name the person who first tapped them to be a leader. Who saw the leader in you? Who mentored and coached you to be the leader you are today?

The Danforth Educational Leadership Program of the University of Washington invites you to identify the next cohort of school leaders to join you in your work. We are looking for committed educators who:

  • exhibit a deep knowledge of teaching and learning
  • collaborate with others
  • engage with students and families
  • actively serve traditionally marginalized students.

More information about our innovative program and award-winning alumni are available at our website:

Help us find the 29th Danforth Cohort by bringing an aspiring leader to an info session, or by sharing this information with an aspiring leader who would benefit from being part of an outstanding year-long, cohort-based, competency-driven program supported by a performance guarantee. Applications for the Danforth 29 Cohort 2016/17 are due February 1.

RSVP and bring an aspiring leader to the session that is most convenient to you at Each info session will include an overview of programmatic, logistical, and application related information.
