Our current slate of programs includes:
The Hunt-Kean Leadership Fellows program, with over 100 Fellows from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, seeks to partner with senior-level political leaders who have the knowledge, skill, and will to be effective, reform-minded education policymakers at the state level.
State legislators are the leading actors in developing some of the most critical education policies. Retreats are designed to connect legislators with leading policy experts and practitioners to help them make the best decisions for all students.
The Hunt Institute supports governors and their advisors by connecting them with in-depth information from experts and providing opportunities to engage in candid dialogue about the best approaches to critical challenges facing education.
The Hunt Institute leads state-based postsecondary leadership programs designed to build state and regional leadership capacity and provide a forum for the development of statewide and community-specific strategies that increase postsecondary attainment.
The Hunt Institute serves as a go-to technical assistance resource to a growing network of state early childhood teams (including gubernatorial staff, state lawmakers, and key early childhood system leaders) advancing policy for young children and families across the nation.
Before, during, and following periods of state leader transition, it is critical for incoming leaders to strategize and build consensus around the topics and policy issues most in need of immediate addressing. The Hunt Institute developed the Advisory Committee model to serve as a platform for incoming state education policy chief executives (state superintendents/secretaries, state higher education executive officers, and early childhood directors) to foster these important discussions and build a broad network of supporters.
