This report presents an evaluation of the Educational Leadership Enhancement Grant Program, (ELEGP), established in 1992 by the Florida legislature to support projects designed to strengthen the professional preparation of women and minorities for leadership positions in public higher education institutions in the state. During 1993-94 six projects were awarded grants totaling $100,000, representing nine institutions statewide and serving 86 selected faculty and administrators. These programs included career counseling, supplemental training and educational opportunities, and mentoring. An evaluation of the programs found that participants reported overwhelmingly that their experience in ELEGP enhanced their professional confidence, as well as their leadership, communications, administrative, financial, and legal skills. Eight participants reported that ELEGP contributed to their advancement and promotion, and three reported that they had begun a doctoral program as the result of the professional encouragement of ELEGP. An appendix provides demographic data on institutional and individual participants, the ELEGP legislative statute, a copy of the participant evaluation form, and four participant mini-case studies.
