NGU develops Center for Educational Leadership and Research at Greer campus

Published on Friday, June 7, 2019

North Greenville University has created The Center for Educational Leadership and Research at North Greenville University’s (NGU) Tim Brashier Campus at Greer.

The Center’s goal is to conduct and support objective research related to public education, provide professional development, advance the study of organizational leadership through collaborative partnerships, and work with tools and resources to move research into practice. Dr. Harold Long, professor of education, serves as the Center’s director.

“North Greenville University’s education students already are highly sought-after, with 100 percent placement rate for new teachers who are seeking employment in schools. This new Center leverages the expertise of our outstanding faculty, allowing them to assist school districts in improving effectiveness,” said NGU President Dr. Gene C. Fant, Jr.

In August 2018, the Center began to collaborate in partnerships and was selected in a competitive process by Greenwood District 52 to provide consulting and professional development in their schools. Since the award, Long and Dr. Shelley Dugle, associate dean of graduate programs in the College of Education, have re-designed a new school report card that is now sent to all the parents in the district.
