|Promoting Educational Opportunity in New England|
NEOA Arnold L. Mitchem Leadership Institute
As part of its mission to provide professional development opportunities for members of the TRiO and educational opportunity community in New England, the New England Educational Opportunity Association (NEOA) began offering a year-long Leadership Institute in 1998-99. The Leadership Institute accepts people with varying years of experience in TRIO/EOPs: mid-career professionals who have been with TRIO/EOPs for a number of years and are looking for a reinvigorating professional development experience and emerging leaders who may be newer to our programs but have demonstrated their motivation and commitment through work within their state.
The selection committee will select a class of leaders for 2016-17 who have demonstrated their energy and commitment through work with their programs and maybe with their state associations. The combination of more experienced and emerging professionals provides an exciting and challenging year-long Institute. The Leadership Institute convenes three times each year that the Institute operates, and provides participants the opportunity to develop greater expertise and skill as leaders in the field and to enhance their ability to expand educational opportunities for the students with whom they work. The aim of the Institute is to provide participants and the programs they serve with a strong and effective core of leadership theory and skills. The Leadership Institute runs once every two years, and will complete its 14th year in 2017.
