"This is the best leadership development program that I've ever experienced. It has been a privilege to be part of the Class of 2006. The insight and knowledge learned from the superb faculty and fellow participants will benefit my current position and continued career advancement tremendously. Without any doubt, participation in ELI is an invaluable investment any community college leader can make in his or her professional career."

ELI Class of 2006
The Executive Leadership Institute (ELI) provides the opportunity for potential community college presidents, or those in transition, to analyze their abilities, reflect on their interests, refine their skills, and engage in leadership discussions with an unparalleled faculty of community college leaders.
Since 1988, more than 600 participants have graduated from ELI, the first and most successful leadership education program of its kind. Forty-three percent of ELI graduates and as many as seventy percent of some graduating classes have accepted presidential appointments.
ELI is sponsored by the League for Innovation in the Community College in cooperation with The University of Texas at Austin and the American Association of Community Colleges.
