Hi. You have to be nominated by an existing AEL or by someone at Adobe. If the nomination goes through - you serve a 2 year term.

Thanks for the info. What is the qualification to get nominated by existing AEL. What are the responsibilities that one has to carry out as a AEL? Thanks in advance for your response.

If an AEL thinks someone should be in the program, then they can nominate that person. This normally occurs after a number of interactions but is really dependent on the person putting forth the nomination. Adobe does not always accept the nomination either.

Responsibilities vary per individual.

So, If I intend to become a AEL, I need to approach an AEL. Are the AELs getting paid for the services. What are the responsibilities one has to fulfill as an AEL? What are the benefits? Are AELs recognized by design industry?

It's a more organic process than that. A good approach would be to work with AELs on various projects they are involved with.


Are the AELs getting paid for the services.

We are not employees of Adobe in our roles as AEL. There are certainly related opportunities to be had though.


What are the responsibilities one has to fulfill as an AEL? What are the benefits?

Have a look at http://www.adobe.com/education/higher-ed/adobe-education-leaders.edu.html as it has some information there.


Are AELs recognized by design industry?

Depends upon the AEL ;)

​This is the link https://edex.adobe.com/campus-leader

If it doesn't work you can go down to the end of any of edex pages you will find "Adobe Education programs" click on it then you will find AEL and ACL
