Posted: June 14, 2018

iSchool alumnus Alexander Salopek (MS '15), acquisitions/government documents librarian for the Supreme Court of the United States, has been chosen to participate in the highly competitive American Library Association Leadership Institute

The thirty-eight total mid-career librarians selected for the 2018 Institute will take part in an immersive leadership development program in August, where they will develop and practice leadership skills in areas critical to the future of the libraries they lead, and allow them to form a vibrant learning community and network. Participants are expected to return to their institutions with greater self-awareness and self-confidence, equipped with better skills for leading, coaching, collaborating, and engaging within their organizations and in their communities, and prepared to identify, develop, and implement solutions which will benefit all stakeholders.
