Eliminating the achievement gap and ensuring high-quality education for diverse student populations depend upon the capacity of local educational leaders to be highly effective at enabling schools in all contexts to teach all students. Realizing this goal also depends upon the capacity of local universities to prepare and support educational leaders to achieve these results. This article describes the UCEA Developing Leaders to Support Diverse Learners (LSDL) curriculum modules for educational leadership preparation, which were designed to build the knowledge, skills, and experiences leadership candidates need to effectively lead the learning of diverse student populations.
