Addressing the issues that confront Black students, faculty and staff on campuses in Illinois
The Leadership and Mentoring Institute (LMI) sponsored by the American Association of Blacks in Higher Education (AABHE) prepares tenured faculty and mid-level administrators for the next phase of academic leadership. Specifically, LMI provides participants with the tools needed to enhance their leadership capacities and improve opportunities for advancement. To date, 65% of our alumni, representing all institutional types and sectors, have been promoted subsequent to their participation in LMI.
