Dr. TulowitzkiWith support from the University of Richmond offices of the Provost and International Education, the School of Professional & Continuing Studies is honored to host Dr. Pierre Tulowitzki as a Visiting Scholar from the Ludwigsburg University of Education (LUE) from June 21 to July 2, 2019.

Dr. Tulowitzki is an assistant professor at the Ludwigsburg University of Education (LUE) in Germany. He is the Director of the Department of International Educational Leadership and Management as well as the German Director of the International Education Management Program, an international master’s program that is offered in collaboration with the Helwan University, Egypt.

Tulowitzki has conducted, published and presented research on a vast array of topics from the realm of educational leadership and school improvement. Through workshops and conferences, he works together with schools to navigate educational change. He serves as a board member of the International Congress for School Effectiveness and Improvement (ICSEI) and as the Link Convenor of the Educational Leadership Network of the European Educational Research Association (EERA).

Tulowitzki’s visit to Richmond builds on the foundation of a summer study abroad course, Comparative Leadership in a Global Context, which he will co-teach during his visit and when the students travel to Germany.

During the course, SPCS graduate students study human migration and leadership in Richmond, and then travel to Germany to interact with Tulowitzki and other faculty from LUE and other German institutions. Eleven SPCS graduate students in Nonprofit Studies, Education Leadership, Curriculum & Instruction, Teacher Education, and Human Resource Management will travel to LUE with Professor Kate Cassada at the end of July for the second iteration of this course.

As a Visiting Scholar, Tulowitzki has a busy agenda of engaging with the Richmond community.
