The year 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the Institute for Educational Leadership. Since 1964, IEL has championed the need for leaders at all levels to shake off their institutional constraints and work together to address the needs of children, youth, and families.
IEL’s programs have helped define national and state policies in education and workforce development, enabled leaders to build collaborative strategies that get results, and assisted practitioners to implement quality practices, leading to better outcomes for our young people.
To learn more about our five decades of impact and our plans to continue to shape and strengthen leadership to serve the next generation of young people over the next 50 years, read our 50th anniversary booklet, "Cross-Boundary Leadership for the Common Good." Also read our "Leadership Lessons for the 21st Century."
Your support is crucial to our work. Thank you for contribution.
IEL is one of the nation’s premiere leadership development organizations in the education and social services fields. In celebration of our half-century mark, we ask that you consider making a special contribution to help support IEL’s continuing role in the development and support of future leaders for learning.DONATE TODAY
