Center for Leadership Excellence

Encouraging and supporting leadership development throughout the University System


Scholars and Chancellor 2016

With the conclusion of the 2015-2016 ELI program, the number of scholars to complete the program has climbed to 315.

To compliment the scholar’s achievement, an awards Luncheon was held in April at the Cunningham Center at Columbus State University. This event was attended by the chancellor, presidents, job shadow leaders, and managers – all who have supported the ELI Scholars through their journey. The level of support across the system is indicative of the importance of this program.

Former Chairman of the Board of Regents, Robert F. Hatcher, in a congratulatory letter to the ELI team, stated “Years from now, as we look back on it, I think we will see the establishment of leadership development programs and our strong support of them as the single most important, lasting thing we will have done. They will be transformative for the system as we go forward.”
