The Leadership Alliance's Strategic Plan, A Decade of Distinction, outlines a plan to develop a prepared talent pool for the 21st century, grow the ranks of alumni who have obtained doctoral degrees, sustain institutional commitment to diversity, and advance the visibility of The Leadership Alliance. The vision and goals define a roadmap for optimizing and growing existing programs while pursuing new partnerships that will enhance our efforts to develop a diverse and competitive 21st century workforce.
This plan represents a bold and unified effort to mobilize for research workforce diversity.
By blending industry partners and non-profit organizations with our existing consortium as well as partnering with new regional colleges and universities, The Leadership Alliance seeks to develop a regional model to address the career pathway needs gap for underrepresented students.
The Leadership Alliance, a national consortium of institutions of higher education, will coordinate and connect regional-scale innovation among partners and develop the infrastructure needed to expand innovative practices on a national scale.
The Leadership Alliance is committed to expanding programming to ensure seamless education and career transitions through graduate school, early career, and beyond.
The Leadership Alliance brings to the table all of the key constituencies for research workforce diversification and can leverage both the knowledge of those who are actively diversifying the research workforce and engage vital stakeholders in academic, industry, and government in helping to devise creative new initiatives.
