Year In Review 2016

The John R. Welty Center for Educational Policy and Leadership
Central Valley Educational Leadership Institute (CVELI) was formed in 2002 by then-President Dr. John Welty with the mission to support Central Valley educational leaders in their efforts to eliminate the achievement gap and raise the achievement of all students. In 2014, Dr. Welty retired after 20 years of service as Fresno State president. In honor of his service to the Fresno State and the Central Valley, renaming CVELI was proposed. In accordance with CSU policy, the CSU Board of Trustees in March 2016 officially renamed CVELI as The John R. Welty Center for Educational Policy and Leadership (Welty Center).
