College of Education faculty member to serve on leadership initiative

Karen Bryant

Karen Bryant, a clinical assistant professor in the College of Education’s lifelong education, administration and policy department, has been selected to serve on the Advancing Inclusive Principal Leadership Initiative, a statewide team sponsored by the Council of Chief State School Officers.

The main goal of the initiative is to integrate inclusive principal leadership in policies and practices across the principal pipeline continuum and to prepare and develop leaders with the knowledge and skills to more effectively serve students with disabilities.

The Georgia team, which is focused on preparing and developing leaders, consists of representatives from the Georgia Department of Education, K-12 school districts and principal preparation programs.

Bryant will work with colleagues in Georgia and across the nation to develop programs and policies to ensure all principals receive professional development to better support teachers of students with disabilities.
