    The American Association of State Colleges and Universities’ (AASCU) Millennium Leadership Initiative (MLI) is a premier leadership development program that provides individuals traditionally underrepresented in the highest ranks of higher education the opportunity to develop skills, gain a philosophical overview and build the network needed to advance to the presidency. 

    MLI logoMLI was originally conceived by AASCU’s African-American presidents to ensure that the next generation of leaders in higher education reflects the diversity of our nation. The program identifies African-American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian and Pacific Islanders in senior-level positions who are interested in career advancement and helps them achieve that goal. MLI, however, accepts all qualified applicants who meet the requirements.

    For over 18 years, MLI has reinforced the vital role that diversity plays in the institutional mission, assisting participants to advance in their careers and helping institutions diversify their executive leadership.
