Amy Rogers, Ph.D., the director of Teacher Education at Lycoming College, and Cindy Allen, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Health Science at Lock Haven University, were selected to participate in the 2015-2016 Pennsylvania Education Policy Fellowship Program. The fellowship cohort of forty includes state policymakers, district superintendents and principals, school business officers, school board members, higher education deans and faculty members, statewide association leaders, parent leaders, education advocates, and other education and community leaders.

The curriculum for the Fellowship Program focuses on education policy issues, the development and implementation of public policy, leadership development, and advocacy. The 10-month program provides a forum in which participators can learn to more effectively influence education policy, develop and refine their leadership capacity, improve their on-the-job performance, and enhance their careers.

With more than 450 graduates in its first sixteen years, the Pennsylvania Education Policy Fellowship Program is a premier professional development opportunity for educators, state and local policymakers, advocates, and community leaders.

Most recently, PA fellows, in addition to more than 400 national state fellows, attended the Presidential Politics and Education Policy Washington DC Seminar. Rogers and Allen met with their state legislators to discuss issues related to education both at the public school level and the higher education level.
