21st Annual CSLEE Values and Leadership Conference - Call for Proposals

The CSLEE’s annual Values and Leadership conference is a three-day conference that promotes research and reflection on issues in values, morals, ethics, and leadership in education. The theme of the conference is Leadership in Uncertain Times: Complex Dilemmas and Ethical Possibilities. We propose that ethical and moral educational leadership plays an even more heightened role in supporting civil societies following international tragedies, such as those that took place in Beirut and Paris in 2015. The deadline for proposals is June 1, 2016.
