Celebrating 50 Years of Developing the Leaders We Need for Education

In 2014, the Institute for Educational  Leadership (IEL) and EPFP will celebrate 50 years helping established and emerging leaders shake off institutional constraints and work across boundaries to improve outcomes for all young people and their families.
EPFP was established in 1964 as the Washington Internships in Education and will be celebrating its 50th year from September 2013 until June 2015.

EPFP’s 50th anniversary presents the IEL family and EPFP network with a unique opportunity to start defining EFFP for the next 50 years and beyond. We hope that you will join us in celebrating this joyous occasion.

EPFP@50 Report Cover

"The Education Policy Fellowship Program at IEL: Fifty Years of Growing Policy-Savvy Leaders – And More to Come,” identifies the brain trust that created IEL, offers a brief tour through the changing decades in America, 1964 to 2014, and describes how IEL’s Education Policy Fellowship Program has maintained its focus and continuity.

We hope the story of the EPFP will prompt you to work with IEL and our EPFP site partners to lead across boundaries – to forge alliances and partnerships designed to ensure education equity and excellence and improved outcomes for young people and families. Together, we can be a catalytic force for building learning and action networks that will enable leaders to face significant challenges of today and those yet to come.
