Alumni Testimonials

Linda Fernandez, Class of 2014

"Participating in CAELI is one of the best things you can do, both personally and professionally. You will walk in not knowing exactly what to expect and you will leave feeling refreshed and reenergized to do amazing work and have a positive impact on your community."

Troy Anderson, Chicago Center for Music Education (ChiME), Class of 2010

"For me, CAELI opened up a whole world of behaviors and competencies that are necessary for me to lead effectively. Having come into CAELI with no prior management or leadership training, the institute also helped me take some of my previous leadership practices to the next level."
