The Georgia EPFP is a professional development program that provides potential leaders with the knowledge and networks to advance the core issues of education policy. This is a critical resource for individuals, organizations, and the state to increase the knowledge about education policy and linkages between policy and practice. Ultimately, EPFP seeks to improve the chances of children and youth to succeed.

Fellows commit nine months and concentrate on three program strands: leadership, public policy, and professional networking. Fellows will remain in their full-time positions and use their work environment as the context for examining important leadership and policy issues in Georgia.



EPFP Fellows are given the opportunity to develop a broadened understanding of the policy process within the multifaceted context of education policy and related issues; hone communication and advocacy skills; refine their potential for leadership; and expand their network of professional colleagues. 

The program provides Fellows with a unique personal development laboratory for applying new insights and for cultivating new skills. The participants will hear and discuss education policy with highly respected policy makers in both Georgia and the nation. At the end of the year, EPFP Fellows will be better informed, more skillful advocates for sound public policy. 

Georgia EPFP is an initiative of the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education. There are also two co-sponsors, the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University and the Office of the Vice President for Public Service and Outreach at The University of Georgia.
