Pursuing a vision where all information and technology professionals have the opportunities, support, and advocacy to achieve senior leadership roles.

Next Leaders Fellowship (NLF) is building a framework to identify, develop, and advocate for information and technology professionals in higher education, with a special emphasis on those who identify as Black, Indigenous, people of color (BIPOC). NLF will recruit participants into a one-year cohort experience where they will be mentored by accomplished senior leaders committed to supporting their professional growth. This effort is not seeking to replace existing leadership development programs, but instead will complement them by explicitly recruiting a cohort of diverse candidates, creating a community among and around them, and providing mentorship and coaching throughout the program year.

This site hosts the NLF application process.
