Summer Institute for Leaders in Education

For nearly two decades, leaders from some of the largest urban public school districts in the country have turned to Harvard University to learn the art and science of management to improve student performance. From raising math scores to reducing chronic absenteeism, the Public Education Leadership Project (PELP) has served as a unique resource for the field, strengthening the management capacities of school leaders.

Founded in 2003 as a partnership between Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) and Harvard Business School (HBS), PELP has brought together teams from 50 urban school districts and across 27 states to test and refine new management theories and to advance the practices of school leadership. At the heart of the project is the PELP Summer Institute, a one-week executive education program led by faculty from both HGSE and HBS. Twelve district leadership teams led by their superintendents participate in the program, a rare opportunity for leaders to focus on the obstacles standing in the way of student success—among colleagues who understand the dilemmas better than anyone.

This year’s institute will take place on the Harvard Business School Campus from July 10 to 14. Superintendents can send an email to expressing their district’s interest in attending the next PELP Summer Institute by December 16, 2022.
