About the California Education Policy Fellowship Program (EPFP)

California EPFP is a joint initiative of the Center for California Studies and the Education Insights Center (EdInsights), two policy-focused centers housed at Sacramento State. The Center for California Studies helps to strengthen democratic governance in California by preparing people for public service and leadership. It also assists California’s public officials and policymakers in addressing the state’s challenges through policy research and productive dialogue. EdInsights’ mission is to inform and improve policymaking and practice for K-12 education, community colleges, and public universities. EdInsights’ portfolio of applied research, evaluations, and capacity-building initiatives helps to inform the curricula, speakers, recruitment, and other facets of EPFP.

California EPFP builds on the respected and effective national EPFP program currently operating in 17 state-based sites across the nation. The national EPFP has built cohorts of diverse, well-equipped education professionals for over 50 years. California EPFP is tailored to help emerging leaders address the state's unique education policy needs.
