Academic Leadership Institute


The Academic Leadership Institute (ALI) was founded by Dr. Earl Lewis and Dr. Dwight A. McBride, and is currently a partnership between the University of Michigan and Washington University.  ALI aims to increase the representation of rising leaders committed to issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), including faculty of color, on track to becoming future presidents and provosts.

ALI conducts an annual Summer Residential Program for which a cohort of promising rising academic leaders are selected to participate. The application for the 2025 Residential Program will open on October 14, 2024.
