Principal Participant, 2022-23 cohort: “I found learning from GW staff to be very well targeted to what we needed as principals and I also found the discussions amongst the principals to be career saving to be quite honest with you.”

Principal Participant, 2022-23 cohort: “Oftentimes administration can feel lonely or like you have no one to bounce ideas off of. I think that is the most valuable part is the connection with other professionals.”
