For over a decade, significant amounts of time, human energy, and financial resources have been expended toward improving the preparation of school leaders. Much of that effort has been funded by philanthropies. UCEA is pleased to share its most recent Research Utilization Brief focused on the sustainability of Wallace Foundation funded university programs.
Between 2000 and 2010, the Wallace Foundation spent approximately $220 million through grants and technical assistance to improve educational leadership in 24 states and 15 large urban districts. Recently the foundation worked with RAND to gain a better understanding of the sustainability of Wallace Foundation funded programs and processes once Wallace Funding was no longer available as well as the strategies that contributed to sustainability. A special thanks to Tricia Browne-Ferrigno, the editor of UCEA's Research Utilization Briefs, and to the Wallace Foundation for their support of UCEA's Research Utilization Briefs.
