About Michigan Leadership Institute

  • Logo MLI

    Michigan Leadership Institute is a Michigan-based business, which focuses on meeting the needs of Michigan school districts. Our mission is to make Michigan's communities better places to learn and live by developing, deploying and supporting outstanding and inspirational local public leadership.

    We believe that the children and communities of Michigan are best served by ethical, competent and sustained leadership in our public schools. Consistent with our mission, we acknowledge that strong leadership for any school system is dependent upon the effective and ongoing development of educational leaders—thus we are in our 20th year of providing leadership to aspiring superintendents through our MLI SUPES Academy. In addition, we recognize that each school district is unique and that matching the needs of the district with the skills and attributes or their next superintendent requires an understanding of the district and community—thus we employ Regional Presidents that are keenly aware of their respective regions and dedicate the time necessary to listen and identify the unique needs of their districts in order to find the best "fit" for their next superintendent. Lastly, as former superintendents, our entire MLI Team understands the challenges of the superintendency and the need for ongoing collegiality and support—thus we commit to supporting your newly hired superintendent over the course of his/her first year, beginning with a governance workshop with the Board of Education and its new leader.
