ALE Rising Star: Early Career Leadership & Service Award
This award recognizes an early career ALE member whose leadership and service upholds and embodies the association's mission: to strengthen and sustain the expertise of professional leadership educators.
ALE recognizes the importance of student involvement in growing the discipline of ALE. This award supports conference participation for up to four graduate and undergraduate student presenters.
ALE Outstanding Program Award
This award is designed to recognize outstanding leadership programs developed or implemented by leadership educators. Two awards will be given in this category; one for a program that has the primary purpose of academic credit, and another for a program that has the primary purpose for an out-of-classroom experience.
This year, ALE is proud to introduce the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Award.
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Award honors individuals and programs using a comprehensive lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion to inform their approach to leadership education. The award will be issued to an individual (practitioner, independent scholar, student, staff, or faculty) and a group (department, unit, program, organization, or institution).
Note: Awards are considered a membership benefit and only paid dues members are eligible to be nominated for these awards.
