Welcome to the Professional Leadership and Practice division!

Our focus is on promoting equity and excellence in the preparation of those responsible for the education and development of all children and youth, from birth to age 21.

Our programs emphasize research driven inquiry and reflection, field-based practice and experiential learning. Included with our professional licensure programs for teachers, counselors and school administrators in the PLP division is the Minor in Education program. Time honored traditions and well informed innovation characterize our scholarship with and for teachers, leaders, counselors and scholars in diverse fields. We work in partnership with schools and communities and engage in research and service that aims to improve the quality of human life through education in North Carolina communities, throughout the country and in the world.

We welcome your inquiries.
