The University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA) is a consortium of higher education institutions committed to advancing the preparation and practice of educational leaders for the benefit of schools and children. UCEA is also a part of several national networks of educational administration organizations focused on improving the field, including the National Policy Board for Educational Administration. The purpose of the 2020 UCEA Convention is to engage participants in discussions about research, policy, practice, and preparation in the field of education with a specific focus on K-12 educational leadership.
The convention theme, Re/Building Home: Coloniality, Belonging, and Educational Leadershipaims to highlight critical discourses around knowledge production and the control of knowledge. Additionally, the theme highlights concepts of belonging relative to our institutional, disciplinary, and personal homes—nations, ethnicities, and identities—and these relationships within educational leadership.
