Building Leadership Licensure

The Newman University Building Leadership program is leading the field in current knowledge and pedagogy for developing educators with the critical skill sets to be the leaders our children and schools deserve. In today’s intense period of change and accountability in education, school administrators who can provide strong leadership are in high demand. The Newman Graduate School of Education offers degree and licensure programs for candidates interested in meeting that demand and advancing their careers.

Already have a Masters and are looking for licensure only?

If you have a master’s degree from another institution, contact Dr. Sealey for a transcript analysis to determine your plan of study. For students who have completed Newman's ESOL or Reading Specialist Curriculum & Instruction programs, there are only four to six courses remaining!

Candidates in the Newman Building Leadership programs “learn by doing.” Throughout their course of study, candidates evaluate their schools to identify possible areas of need, then research and incorporate best practices, analyze and propose school policy, and design, implement and lead projects to enhance and improve their schools

This program prepares candidates to successfully pass the School Leadership Licensure Assessment (SLLA) Praxis and apply for the 2-year PreK-12 Conditional Building Leadership License in the state of Kansas. This program is designed for completion in three semesters!

Candidates for the Building Leadership Licensure Program are considered non-degree seeking, and therefore, not eligible for federal aid.
