The Great Lakes Leadership Academy Board of Governors’ and Michigan State University Extension invite you to become part of a very special group of people who will learn about themselves, develop their leadership potential and share knowledge about a broad range of issues affecting quality of life in Michigan and Great Lakes communities.

Apply to the Emerging Leader Program

Tuition for the Emerging Leader Program is $3,500, which includes all meals, lodging and materials. Participants will be required to cover their own transportation to and from the meeting sites. For many, a sponsoring organization may be willing to assist with all or a portion of this amount. Limited scholarships are also available from the Great Lakes Leadership Academy, based on need.
