Education Policy Fellowship Program

Why Become a Michigan EPFP Fellow?

When asked why they want to become fellows, Michigan EPFP Fellows give an appropriately diverse set of answers. They came to

  • network with other professionals in hopes of advancing their careers and/or expanding their circle of professional contacts;
  • meet with a broad range of speakers and gain additional insights into the education and human services policymaking process;
  • find solutions to specific problems they are grappling with or new ways of overcoming difficult educational and human service barriers;
  • examine and test their leadership skills to see whether they have what it takes to move on to the next level within or outside their own organization; and
  • interact on a more personal, social level with other professionals who have the same thirst for knowledge.
