Virtual Professional Development
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. In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have committed to supporting an increased number of students through virtual programming. This series, developed by Leadership Alliance faculty, administrators, and evaluation specialists, offers all students the opportunity to participate in high-quality professional development activities on a virtual platform.
