Sponsors of ARL Leadership Fellows

ARL Leadership Fellows sponsor directors are expected to contribute to the program planning and to host a weeklong institute. The particular strengths of a sponsor director’s institution and/or library add value to the curriculum and programming and to the overall fellowship experience. Sponsor directors support at least one or up to two fellows to participate in the program. Sponsor directors are chosen in consideration of the following criteria:

  • Directors who have not previously served as sponsor director for the Leadership Fellows program
  • Geographic diversity of the sponsor institution
  • Mix of public/private/governmental institutions
  • Variance in size of the institutions
  • Balance of institutional characteristics in terms of strengths and notable programs
