What happens when you bring together 25 full-time educators and challenge them to identify and solve real-world problems? Research, technology tools and insights are shared. Friendships and partnerships form. And leaders emerge.

That's what happens in UCLA's Educational Leadership Program, led by faculty member Wellford W. “Buzz” Wilms.
