The Association for Rural and Small Libraries (ARSL) will develop a pilot leadership institute for directors and managers working in rural and/or small libraries. Over an 18-month period, 30 individuals from a variety of rural communities and diverse populations across the country will engage in residential, online, and conference experiences to build their capacity as leaders. The leadership institute also will focus on strengthening community leadership, building ARSL's organizational capacity, and evaluating the pilot for future effectiveness and scalability. The curriculum will leverage the Educopia Institute's IMLS-funded NEXUS: Leading Across Boundaries model and other nationally recognized instructors and curriculum to develop a customized series of immersive learning experiences for participants.
