John D. Welty Center for Educational Policy and Leadership

Welty Center Partnerships and Sponsors

The aim of the John D. Welty Center for Educational Policy and Leadership Center is to inform, develop and sustain best leadership practices in an effort to eliminate the student achievement gap and raise the performance of all rural and urban P-12 students in the Central Valley and to support post-secondary leaders in their quest.

Partnerships and event sponsors with districts, community organizations and businesses support those efforts. Together, with your help, we bring world-class leaders to annual conferences and events, train site and district administrators and teacher leaders, provide executive coaching, encourage rural networking opportunities and individualize services to meet the unique needs of our diverse 5-county area.

In appreciation, partner and event sponsor logos appear on our website and information materials.
