Truman Spring, MA, PhD (Candidate)

Associate Director of the MEd Leadership 

I am currently the Associate Director of the Master of Education in Leadership program and a professor at City University in Canada since 2018. I have been in the public school system for over 40 years and has worked within the education departments of the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, and Langara College. My non- profit work has included the role of President with the Laurel Foundation, Board of Directors for the British Columbia Administrators in Special Education, CEO of Prescient Technologies, and has been active within Global Eyesight International, funded by the International Rotarian Foundation, as Co-Treasurer for many years. I have also been a long time member of the Rotarian Society.

In my current role, the focus is to update our graduate programs and to continue to perpetuate the high standards that our graduates expect from us.

Research

My areas of interest are:

  • Animal Assisted Therapy
  • Trauma and anxiety in elementary aged students
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Teaching

Effective innovative leadership is critical in this process of improving student achievement. It is important that a leader articulates a vision, and strives to have the courage to gracefully deal with the disequilibrium of change. It is equally significant to work diligently to create positive, honouring, and honest relationships with all school and community stakeholders.
