Mission of LPC
The mission of the Leadership Preparation Council (LPC) is to develop, refine, and improve clinical practice, curriculum, and partnerships in the educational leadership program. This work will support the vision of the program to drive and support improvement in primary and secondary education in all Mississippi schools through the preparation of leaders with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to continually improve collaborative, professional school organizations.
