A free professional development experience for all y’all

The Department of Educational Leadership in the College of Education at the University of Florida, in collaboration with the All Y’All Social Justice Collective, are proud to host this important work.

School leadership plays a critical role in student achievement. Today, more than ever, schools need leaders with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to lead in a variety of school contexts and diverse populations. The Department of Educational Leadership is committed to training and preparing school leaders able to meet the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s communities, learners, and educators.

The All Y’all Social Justice Series Collective currently consists of Florida public school teachers; education faculty members and researchers from the University of North Florida, University of North Georgia, College of Charleston, and University of Florida; and staff from a variety of Southern-based justice organizations. We seek to connect educators, students, and community members who are leading social justice work across the Southeastern United States. We provide educative experiences to share Southern justice work in education, inspire personal reflection, and encourage future partnerships between community members. Our hope is to spark collaboration and influence ideas in the name of social justice for all students.
