NFBPA Executive Leadership Institute - November 2016

Community Building: Bridging the Gap between Politics and Administration

The KU School of Public Affairs and Administration is thrilled to be a host institution for the Executive Leadership Institute (ELI), a rigorous professional development program, which works in partnership with eight cities and universities through the country. The ELI program offers an unparalleled mix of academics and practitioner-based experience, successfully preparing African-American managers annually for executive level appointments in state and local government.

We are pleased to join the National Forum for Black Public Administrators (NFBPA) in their continuing efforts to hone the skills and capabilities of an elite core of African Americans who aspire to be managers and administrators in local, state, and federal government. We have enjoyed a relationship with NFBPA for many years - read about our history.

Here are some comments from ELI participants:

"It was very thought provoking and engaging for all the participants. The best experience thus far in the entire ELI program.”

“Thank you for setting up the environment to have a real conversation about race. Many thanks to [KU staff] for the hospitality, stories, advice, the topics, and the entire experience that I have had here at KU.”

“The staff [and faculty] at KU are awesome and very engaging. I would love to attend a doctoral program in local government management at KU.”
