The 2018 – 15Th Annual Institute for Emotional Intelligence

Transforming Work, School, and Life

Transforming Work, School, and Life


Four Pre-Conference Workshops Culminate in a 2-Day Emotional Intelligence Conference on Thursday and Friday, April 19-20, 2018

The Emotional Intelligence Research Institute (EIRI) was created and developed by Darwin Nelson, Ph.D. and Gary Low, Ph.D. in 2002 at Texas A&M University-Kingsville. In 2004, the first annual EI conference was convened to share and disseminate research on personal and emotional intelligence skills, and to highlight best practice applications in education and organizational settings. The tradition continues in 2018 with the Fifteenth Annual Institute for Emotional Intelligence with involvement from professionals in Education, the Department of Defense, Human Resources, Counseling, Social Work, and more.

Since 2008 efforts to grow and develop the annual EI institutes have been sustained through the Emotional Intelligence Training and Research Institute (EITRI), a professional association and online forum. EITRI members in good standing may access a discount code to enter during registration for a 25% discount for the 15Th Annual EI Institute and all related events.
