The Broad Residency in Urban Education is a national leadership development program that places participants into managerial positions in public school systems. By taking on roles within the system, participants lead transformation efforts to improve public education for all children.
Residents participate in two years of cohort-based professional development and take on a wide range of work, including strategic planning, overseeing complex programs, and overhauling budgeting processes. They are also tasked with leading initiatives that require strong analytical skills and the ability to manage projects and teams.
After the program, more than 90% of Residency alumni continue to work in public education, making a significant impact as leaders within their organizations. Alumni of The Broad Residency also have access to a wide range of professional services—including executive coaching, in-person gatherings, career services, and an online knowledge sharing community.
“The Residency helped me enter education at the right level. You reach a stage in your career where it is difficult to imagine taking an entry-level job in a new industry,” shares Ken Zeff, Interim Superintendent of Fulton County Schools.
