Outcomes of the Emerging Educational Administrator Institute

The Emerging Educational Administrator Institute (EEAI) is committed to making a lasting impact. Each Scholar, Mentor, and Faculty triad work tirelessly throughout the program to plan, implement, and lead a variety of projects. Not only do these projects impact the participants by expanding their personal influence and confidence, but they also have a profound impact on the supporting institutions, the profession of nursing, and global health.
