The EPFP brings together cohorts of education leaders to learn about three national program pillars: policy, leadership and networking. For the university’s EPFP cohort, 16 fellows have been studying challenges of rural schools, particularly in the rural South, since August 2016. Their work culminated in the trip to Washington, D.C., where they met with other EPFP Fellows from across the country, as well as Mississippi representatives and U.S. Department of Education staff.
