The AASAP Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI) provides a means for Arkansas TRIO professionals to gain valuable knowledge, training, and professional development in the area of leadership, as well as creates opportunities for the membership to develop the skills necessary to assist in the opertation of the Association.

Although it is similar to the regional SWASAP ELI program, all AASAP ELI trainings and meetings taken place within Arkansas which makes it a viable training opportunity for AASAP members who may not have the flexibility for the travel required of the SWASAP ELI participants. For required training dates, AASAP covers the mileage and meal costs for selected participants.

Any regular members of AASAP in good standing is eligible for participation in the ELI class. It is strongly recommended that the ELI participant have at least two years of TRIO experience.
