Add Program to Directory of Leadership Education Programs

How does ILA decide if something is a "leadership" certificate or degree program or if something is a center of office offering "leadership" programing? In other words, what is meant by leadership?

ILA is a multidisciplinary, multisector, global association. Is the study of leadership multidisciplinary? Interdisciplinary? A discipline in and of itself? In this relatively young academic field, these questions are still under consideration. As such, inclusion in the directory is somewhat subjective. It is not necessary for a program or center to have the word "leadership" in its name to be considered for inclusion. Nor is the use of the word "leadership" a guarantee that a program or center will be included. This is a curated list. As with all curated lists, inclusion is based on the subjective judgement of the curator. Ultimately the ILA, as curator of the directory, reserves the right to determine which programs and centers are listed.

Please complete the form to the best of your ability. The more complete the form is, the easier it will be for people to locate your leadership education program in the directory!
