By the end of your graduate program, you should be able to show what you’ve learned, and your portfolio will ensure that you do just that. The portfolio requirements and process varies depending on your program.
Adult & Continuing Education Leadership / Higher Education Administration Portfolio
What’s In A Portfolio?
Introduction: This section provides a brief snapshot of who you are as an educator. Some students write a letter to the reviewers, while others simply write a brief biography.
Resume: This may be included on the page provided, as an attachment, or as both.
Philosophy Statement: This section identifies your core beliefs surrounding administrative leadership and how those connect the six outcomes of your program.
Reflections: Reflections for each individual outcome (compose in the space provided in the template) include:
- Outcome stated at the top
- Identification of the artifact with a rationale of why it fits the standard
- The context of the artifact and the role you played in its development
- Identification of what you learned and how you will put it into practice as a building administrator
Include the artifact as an attachment. You may use documents, PowerPoint presentations, video clips, etc.
We strongly encourage you to familiarize yourself with all of the materials pertaining to the ePortfolio process. The earlier you start your ePortfolio, the easier the process will be.

Educational Administration & Supervision Portfolio
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction requires all candidates in professional education programs to develop a portfolio. You can share this e-portfolio with professors, classmates, and other groups for assessment and collaboration. It is designed to be a developmental process and allow you opportunity to reflect on your knowledge, skills and experiences as you move through the program. Use the platform provided in D2L to develop and maintain your portfolio.
Note: Upon completion of coursework required for licensure, all applicants must complete and submit for review an ePortfolio detailing their competencies of the UWM core guiding principles and the UWM-WI state standards for administrators. Two members of the Administrative Leadership faculty will evaluate your ePortfolio during the final semester of your program.
The Resource Library includes all the resources that you’ll need to complete your ePortfolio.
