The Equity Leaders Institute (ELI) is a unique learning opportunity for educators and community leaders committed to advancing education equity in their local settings.

ELI participants engage in shared learning experiences specifically designed to facilitate in-depth discussion, examination and planning. This application process allows ELI planners to gain a sense of potential participants’ areas of need and interests to inform session content and activities.

Please note this is an application for entrance into the institute not the registration form. Every person interested in enrolling in the ELI should complete their own individual application.  Group applications are not permitted.  If for some reason this proves to be a barrier to your attendance or the attendance of individuals from your organization, please contact Seena Skelton at or by telephone at (317) 278-6832.

Admitted applicants will receive notification via email within two weeks following submission of their application. That email will include further information about registration.
