Be A Victor

We strive to support our students and faculty on the frontlines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the Barger Leadership Institute needs you—because the world needs Victors.

Welcome to the Barger Leadership Institute.

The Institute was founded in 2007 with the generous support of University of Michigan alumni committed to innovative undergraduate education in the liberal arts and to the goal of early, rigorous, and general leadership education. The Barger Leadership Institute partners with other programs and units on campus to provide Michigan students with rich curricular and co-curricular opportunities as well as funding in support of leadership learning that teaches beyond the conventional classroom.


We invite you to find out more about our students, upcoming events, and available Institute resources.
