Michigan EPFP 40th Anniversary Alumni Seminar
June 10, 2015
Kellogg Center, MSU
About the Event:
On June 10, 2015, the Michigan Education Policy Fellowship Program held its 40th Anniversary Alumni Seminar at MSU’s Kellogg Center. This event was a milestone for Michigan EPFP and provided an opportunity for networking with friends and colleagues.
The Alumni Seminar recognized this year's class of 37 EPFP Fellows and our 1,000th program participant.
We invited Dr. Helen Janc Malone, IEL's new Director of Institutional Advancement and the National Director for EPFP who provided an update on the national program as it looks to the future. In addition, we heard from Dr. Michael Usdan, IEL Senior Fellow and IEL President from 1981-2001 who shared his perspectives on the changing role of federal education policy.
This was then followed by an EPFP alumni panel discussion and reflections on 40 years of EPFP in Michigan.
Finally, the program concluded by recognizing Dr. Douglas B. Roberts with IEL's National Leadership Award for his contributions to the Michigan EPFP over the past 25 years.
