Darden/Curry Partners in Leadership Program empowers leaders in education to
operate school systems effectively and efficiently.
The Darden/Curry Partnership for Leaders in Education (PLE) is a joint venture of the University Of Virginia Darden School Of Business and the Curry School of Education.
Established in 2003, the PLE was formed in order to combine the most innovative thinking in business and education to better serve our nation’s children by empowering education leaders to meet the demands of operating schools and school systems.
Believing in the critical importance of effective school system leadership, the PLE designs and delivers programs, including the University of Virginia School Turnaround Program, to strengthen leadership practice and establish proof points of excellence.
