Duquesne Educational Leadership Symposium (DELS)
The University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA) Center for Educational Leadership and Social Justice held its 7th Annual Duquesne Educational Leadership Symposium (DELS), "Rivers of Justice Bridges of Love: What is the new steel upon which we re-imagine a healthier, more equitable Pittsburgh community?" on May 19-21, 2014 in the ballroom of Duquesne's Power Center and within local communities. The UCEA Center, sponsored by the Duquesne University School of Education, is one of only eight centers in the world and it seeks to investigate the relationship between educational leadership and social justice, focusing on how educational leaders can be better prepared and equipped to deal with students who are marginalized, under-represented, and underprivileged. This invited symposium has attracted over 70 educational leadership scholars and practitioners from the U.S. and Canada.
