Would you like to meet other fellows from across the country? Does participating in a five-day leadership institute aimed at developing your leadership skills, enhancing your cultural competencies, and preparing you for a career in student affairs sound enticing? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you are encouraged to apply to be a part of the Dungy Leadership Institute (DLI). DLI is held annually on various university campuses and offers 40 select Fellows the unique opportunity to network with their peers and student affairs administrators serving as institute faculty representing the scope of NASPA's membership. The DLI not only provides an in-depth leadership development experience, but it also prepares Fellows for graduate work in student affairs/higher education. With the cost of food, travel, and lodging covered, there is no reason for any Fellow to miss out on this life changing experience.

Learning Outcomes

As a result of attending DLI, Fellows will demonstrate:

  • Knowledge of how their personal identities and histories have impacted their lives and their ability to work with others;

  • an understanding of the multiple paths to working in Student Affairs;

  • an ability to find ethical resolutions to critical issues in Student Affairs;

  • requisite writing, research, and speaking skills for entry into graduate school;

  • professional networking skills; and

  • cultural competency skills that are integral to the profession. 

*This program was formerly known as the Summer Leadership Institute. In 2012, it was renamed the Dungy Leadership Institute after Executive Director Emeritus Gwendolyn Dungy retired.
