Organizational Overview


The Principal Impact Collaborative at UNT Dallas is an innovative leadership program for North Texas school leaders. PIC was originally launched because our urban schools need to retain high-performing principals who create an environment where teachers want to stay and student learning thrives. Experienced principals need to be empowered and inspired to drive impact on their campuses. PIC seeks to provide the time and space for school leaders to grow and thrive.


Our program model is unique nationally in that our curriculum blends three key content areas to provide a “whole adult” approach to leadership development: transformative leadership, human centered design (aka design thinking) and personal resilience/well-



being. Our model also provides an opportunity for participants to network and share best practices with like-minded peers, while incubating and executing a ‘big idea’ to drive impact on their campus. Our program’s core values are centered on respecting the individual leader and equipping them to have the confidence, skills, and resilience to lead successfully and generate sustained impact in their demanding roles.
