The premier education reform conference on the East Coast.


From its beginnings in 2007, the Yale School of Management Education Leadership Conference has grown to become a nationally recognized forum for education reform. Each year, the ELC challenges hundreds of students, educators and administrators to think critically about the biggest questions facing education reform. The 2018 conference marks our 12th anniversary.

The ELC is a fully student planned and managed conference. Each year, 20+ Yale School of Management students work from early in the school year to conceptualize, plan, and realize the spring conference. 

Our Mission

The Yale School of Management Education Leadership Conference exists to create a forum for leaders in education reform. We seek to create a constructive dialogue about how leadership skills applied to the education sector can be used to solve the most pressing and complex challenges in public education.
