Leadership Training

From the program info: "The Nexus “Leading Across Boundaries” (LAB) initiative, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and hosted by the Educopia Institute, is a federated, national effort involving a wide range of leadership training stakeholders from the archives, museum, and library communities."

The program ran from 2014 until 2017, but its curriculum continues to stay available online.

Formerly known as the Getty Leadership Institute, Museum Leadership Institute is now an independent institute within Claremont Graduate University. MLI offers leadership trainings for executive and emerging museum professionals.
