Catholic Educational Leadership

Catholic Educational Leadership (CEL) students have come to study from the 50 states, as well as many foreign countries throughout the world.

Catholic schools offer an alternative in a pluralistic society. They must be strong if we are to succeed as a true democracy, dependent on an educated citizenry. 

Catholic schools do not have the finances, the resources or the enrollment of their public counterparts, so their strength must come from the excellence of preparation and the dedicated commitment of their personnel. It is USF's goal to ensure both through the Catholic Educational Leadership Program.
