The PKAL SLI model provides a unique blend of theory and practice in leadership development, drawing on the expertise of mentors who are recognized leaders in undergraduate STEM, and who bring to this assignment diverse disciplinary perspectives; experience in dealing with the politics and processes of change; and the ability to focus on the big picture. Experiential learning, mentoring, and time for personal reflection are built into the schedule, complemented by discussions of major national issues facing contemporary academic leaders. As with all PKAL events, each participant leaves with a vetted agenda for action, which includes a plan for continued conversations and collaborations with Institute colleagues and indicated opportunities for leadership beyond their community.
