MSU President’s Education Forums

The MSU President’s Education Forums were established in 1998 and are an outreach strategy to inform policy makers and education leaders about current education policy issues and to open discussion around research and best practice in specific education policy areas.  These annual forums are sponsored by Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon and by the College of Education through the Office of K-12 Outreach.  These forums, which are by invitation only, are well attended by state legislators and their staff members, State Board of Education members, Michigan Department of Education staff, leaders of local and intermediate school districts and association representatives.  Each year the forums provide an opportunity for continuing conversations around critical national and state policy issues. Presentations are made by key MSU College of Education faculty and national authorities who address critical policy issues.  The Michigan EPFP's affiliation with the Education Policy Center at MSU and the Office of K-12 Outreach enables the EPFP Fellows to participate in these forums.  While attendance is encouraged, these forums are optional policy experiences for the Michigan EPFP Fellows.  A luncheon is provided and reservations are required.

The specific dates and speakers for the 2012 forums will be listed as they are confirmed.

For more information see President's Education Forums.
