Join a network of educational leaders for social justice and earn your clear administrative credential at Berkeley's Leadership Support Program (LSP), the longest running university-based induction program in California.

Why LSP?

Our mission: to induct and support a diverse community of school leaders who will improve California’s public schools that serve vulnerable and historically underserved students, with a particular focus on issues of equity and social justice.

LSP Introduction 2016

My LSP seminars rejuvenated me and gave me the strength to continue the work. We were always able to lean on each other for support.
