Educational leadership professor is president-elect of UCEA
Michael Dantley (educational leadership), interim associate dean of the School of Education and Allied Professions, was voted president-elect of the University Council of Educational Administration (UCEA) at its annual convention in November in Kansas City, Mo.
The 50-year-old organization is a consortium of major research universities with doctoral programs in educational leadership and policy. Dantley will be the first African American to serve as the president. He takes on the role in November 2005.
Dantley has served on the UCEA's executive committee and represented Miami at the UCEA convention.
The organization is committed to advancing the preparation and practice of educational leaders for the benefit of schools and children.
UCEA was founded by 15 universities, the Kellogg Foundation and the regional Centers for Educational Administration, all of whom recognized the need for inter-university collaboration to build a knowledge base of research and effective practice for the field of educational administration.
