The Education Policy Fellowship Program (EPFP), a national program that develops a diverse and collaborative community of strategic leaders for effective public policy, is pleased to welcome Mississippi Delta Community College administrator Dr. Brent Gregory as a member of the 2015-16 cohort of fellows.

This year, more than 320 Fellows are participating in the program-the largest cohort in EPFP's 52-year history. The program's alumni network continues to grow as well and includes 8,500 alumni across all 50 states.

EPFP combines regular meetings and activities specific to each state-based site program with events of national scope to provide an enriching experience for participating Fellows. The national cohort is a diverse group of leaders which includes educators and school leaders, district administrators, higher education faculty and leaders, nonprofit professionals, government officials, and leaders from complementary sectors such as health and human services, business, and social services. Diversity across the national cohort and within sites brings unique perspectives to discussions among Fellows that enrich their experience in the program.

EPFP focuses on three pillars-policy, leadership, and networking-and throughout the 10-month Fellowship, participants build their skills and knowledge in each of these areas. In addition, several sites participate in regional leadership forums in the fall, and all Fellows come to Washington, D.C., in April for the Washington Policy Seminar, EPFP's national capstone conference.

Launched in 1964, EPFP is a program of the Institute for Educational Leadership, based in Washington, D.C. Learn more about EPFP at http://epfp.iel.org and connect with the program on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
