Who We are

Leadership Alliance Members


The Leadership Alliance, founded at Brown University in 1992 as a partnership of 23 institutions, came together to develop underrepresented students into outstanding leaders and role models in academia, business, and the public sector. Today, this consortium has grown to more than 30 partners and has provided research, mentoring, and networking experiences to over 4,000 scholars.
 The Leadership Alliance uses a time-tested model to leverage its collective resources to address the shortage of individuals from historically underrepresented groups in doctoral training programs, academia, and the broader research workforce.

Our community defines the Leadership Alliance in their own words…
Member Institutions

Members of the Leadership Alliance include more than thirty of the nation’s leading research and teaching academic institutions. This national partnership between Minority Serving Institutions and Ph.D. granting institutions has nearly three decades of collective expertise in developing evidence-based programs in all academic disciplines that begin at the undergraduate level and continue through to professional careers.
