BLI 10 Year

The BLI was founded in 2007 to provide student-powered but faculty-guided opportunities for leadership development to Michigan undergraduates. The Institute has evolved and grown dramatically over the last ten years and we are poised to expand our reach and our programs into the next decade. 

Please join us to celebrate this milestone and help envision our future. We welcome alumni, supporters and partners from on and off campus to join us for a weekend long celebration.
