The focus of this course is to develop leadership skills to promote, create, and monitor systems in the school and district that result in a nondiscriminatory, positive learning environment for all students.  Special emphasis is given to culturally, economically, and academically diverse students.  The effects of mental health conditions on the learning environment, including the roles and responsibilities of mental health professionals, are examined.

  1. Articulate leadership strategies to work with diversity in learning communities.
  2. Analyze differing needs of culturally, economically, and academically diverse students.
  3. Create plans for an inclusive learning environment that meets the needs of all students.
