The Centre of Leadership and Educational Policy was formed after its restructuring in 2018. The restructuring was considered as the faculty’s strategy to remain advanced in response with the transitional challenges in education. At current, the centre is manpowered by 17 members including 2 professors, 13 senior lecturers and 2 young lecturers. Its niche is divided into two strands: Policy and Administration, and Research Sustainability and Human Development. On one hand, the niche of Policy and Administration focuses on the fields of management and education, curriculum development and the governance of higher institutions as well as academic leadership.
