Chicago Leadership Collaborative
In November 2011, Mayor Emanuel announced the Chicago Leadership Collaborative (CLC), in order to create a pipeline of highly qualified leaders to meet the District's needs well into the future.
The CLC is a unique partnership between the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) and leading principal development programs. It provides the District with an unprecedented capacity to develop, attract, and retain high-performing principals from internal and external sources, making Chicago a “destination of choice” for aspiring urban school leaders.
Meet our current cohort of Resident Principals here.
This unique collaboration is a partnership between CPS and the following partners: DePaul University, Loyola University Chicago, National Louis University, New Leaders, Northern Illinois University, Teach for America (in conjunction with Harvard University), University of Illinois Chicago, and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
