In 2008, the ELP commissioned an independent evaluation and impact assessment conducted by the Leadership Learning Community. Utilizing the EvaluLEAD approach, the evaluation team consulted with ELP alumni, faculty and staff to assess outcomes at three levels: personal, organizational and societal/community.
"I’ve been wary of words such as "holistic’ and "integrated" because they hold so much promise but hardly every deliver. This course was different. Everything fell into place about a whole range of issues that must be considered for sustainable development…The firm friendships forged are so valuable to me."
Simon Thuo, ELP 2001

"ELP is a community of peers with extraordinary expertise and vision to share with each other. Facilitating peer learning, knowledge sharing, documentation of lessons learned and generative problem solving are ways in which ELP alumni are continuing to improve and scale their efforts" — Beahrs ELP Evaluation
