Loyola’s Online Certificate Program for a Superintendent Endorsement was developed in partnership with the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED) and an Administration and Supervision (ADSU) Advisory Board composed of active superintendents in the Chicagoland area. All members of the ADSU Advisory Board are also alumni of Loyola University of Chicago. Loyola University Chicago’s Superintendent Certificate program embraces CPED’s vision to prepare school district leaders to become well-equipped scholarly practitioners who remain steadfast stewards of the profession and meet the educational challenges of the 21st century. Our Catholic and Jesuit mission is integral to the SOE commitment to research and teaching excellence. We seek to insert ourselves on the side of the poor, the marginalized, and those seeking social justice. We are uniquely positioned to use academic and professional resources to apply critical knowledge and improvement practices to promote justice for Chicago’s educational community.
