Ohio University Leadership Project (OULP)

What is OULP?

Ohio University Leadership Project (OULP) has as its purpose the identification, development, and implementation of needed professional programs for current and aspiring school administrators.

The OULP represents an initiative directed at the professional development of school leaders. It was initiated in 1994 and has grown significantly both in its program offerings and in its number of participants.

This OULP cohort involves a group of elementary administrators who meet regularly to listen to and engage in discussions with experts regarding selected topics that are relevant and timely to the operation of their schools.

In the coming months, we will be sending out a survey to determine how to continue to meet the needs of our school leaders while also honoring the legacy of this important project which was started by Bill Larsen.
