Why LMI?

There is a glass ceiling in higher education that prevents African-Americans and other minorities from climbing to senior administrative and tenured faculty ranks. The few minorities in the junior ranks are often isolated and lack support needed to be successful. The Black Caucus of the former American Association for Higher Education sponsored several Summits on "Blacks in Higher Education" to gather data and propose ideas to address this problem. The Leadership and Mentoring Institute (LMI) for AABHE members and other African-Americans is an effort to help professionals acquire the requisite information and skills to prepare for senior administrative and faculty positions.
