What Leaders In The Field Are Saying About the Center
"This program thoughtfully brings together cutting edge partners that together will create a high-caliber, hands-on environment for learning. Those that complete the program will be sought after by many school systems for leadership positions in special education."

Who Should Apply?
The fellowship program is designed for teachers and administrators (including superintendents and assistant superintendents), as well as leaders within related disciplines within school systems (e.g., school psychology, speech/language pathology). Most graduates of the fellowship program are expected to return to the public school system; however, graduates will obtain skills that may lead to positions within universities (e.g., leadership and teacher education), research, policy making, and development of technology. Graduates of the Center for Innovation and Leadership in Special Education fellowship will receive the Administrator I certification (a requirement for supervisors, assistant principals, and principals) through the Maryland State Department of Education and Towson University.
