New Mexico Leadership Institute
Committed To Building Tomorrow’s Leaders Today

Due to the overwhelming response in first year applications and the success of our inaugural class, New Mexico Leadership Institute (NMLI) , formerly the Rosemont Leadership Institute, is currently evaluating structural changes to the program that can accommodate more students and greater participation over time. While regrettably this will mean that the Institute does not accept a class this academic year, we feel that a brief evaluation period is in the best interests of the program longer-term. NMLI will begin accepting applications for next year’s class in September of 2014.

The current students in the NMLI program are continuing with their curriculum and working towards the successful grant of their scholarships.

We greatly appreciate your patience, and look forward to resuming in 2014.
