Participants: Leadership Perceptions of Campus Programs for Refugee Students Richard Pelton, Texas State University; A. Minor Baker, Texas State University This study examines how educational leaders perceive the efficacy of campus-based programs for adolescent-age refugees. Campus and district leaders establish programs for these students to grow academically and become members of the local school community. This study uses qualitative methods to focus on the perceptions of campus leaders on programs that prepare students to meet campus and district goals. The results show that leadership decisions with greater cultural responsiveness increase program effectiveness. Bilingual Teacher Identity Development in a Culturally Relevant Educational Space Brenda Rubio, University of Texas - Austin This ethnographic study examines the motivations bilingual Latina/o educators have to seek out and participate in alternative educational spaces outside school that promote the curricular recognition of alternative epistemologies and pedagogies to foster students’ race, cultures and languages. This work can potentially help those involved in policy making to better understand the need for inclusive, culturally rich educational space and curriculum for Latina/o teachers and to uncover holistic ways to support bilingual educators. Serving Students Through Culturally Proficient Leadership Miriam D. Ezzani, University of North Texas; Renee Agent, N/A; Jeffrey Bradley, N/A; Ivy Foss, University of North Texas; Nakendrick Johnson, University of North Texas; Laura Koehler, University of North Texas; Conrad Streeter, University of North Texas Three papers jointly authored by seven doctoral students explore what they learned from the literature, theory, research, and interview analyses to develop specific recommendations for moving an institution and individuals within it on the high end of the spectrum toward culturally proficient leadership. Facilitator: Michael Dantley, Miami University
