The Center for Integrative Leadership—an initiative of the Humphrey School of Public Affairs and the Carlson School of Management, along with several other colleges at the University of Minnesota—will host 25 of Africa’s brightest emerging leaders this summer for a six-week academic and leadership institute, made possible through the Mandela Washington Fellowship.

The Mandela Washington Fellowship, the flagship program of President Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI), empowers young African leaders through academic coursework, leadership training, mentoring, networking, professional opportunities, and support for activities in their communities. Fellows are young leaders from Sub-Saharan Africa who have a proven record of accomplishment in promoting innovation and positive change in their organizations, institutions, or communities.
