For nearly 30 years, the Leadership Alliance has developed programs that foster intellectual and professional growth along every stage of the academic and career path. We are committed to supporting our students in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.
Leadership Alliance faculty, administrators, and evaluation specialists have worked collaboratively to transition our summer research activities to a virtual platform.

To learn more about our new virtual programs, view a message from Executive Director, Dr. Medeva Ghee.
