Guiding the Leaders
of Tomorrow

Are you an individual who seeks to develop or improve the knowledge and practice of others by providing high quality leadership education informed by credible leadership literature and practice?  If so, the Association of Leadership Educators (ALE) is for you! Our members include leadership educators who are:

  • faculty in higher education,
  • community educators,
  • leadership studies students,
  • consultants and coaches,
  • student affairs professionals,
  • leadership training officers, and
  • others who identify as leadership educators.

Membership provides access to a professional newsletter, priority notification of content in the Journal of Leadership Education, eligibility to be nominated for professional awards, and a reduced registration rate for the annual ALE conference.


The ALE Difference

The Association of Leadership Educators (ALE) is a grassroots organization. The leadership of the association depends upon the volunteer service of its members. This allows us to be personal, adaptable, inclusive and collaborative.  ALE believes that collaboration and dialogue are the keys to developing leadership educators. The association promotes this idea through inclusive educational initiatives designed to strategically build human capacity in our people, organizations, and communities.  This work is grounded in the scholarship of our field.  

Our annual conference, webinar series, and other key efforts play a vital role in the member experience.  ALE believes it is critical to engage its members in both research and collegiality that provides the underpinnings for our work as leadership educators.  Together, our work to strengthen and sustain leadership education has the potential for actualization and ultimately, creates a foundation for serving our learners, organizations, and communities.


                                                                       Thank You for Making ALE's 25th Year A Success!
