Advanced Graduate Leadership Program

The SEAS Advanced Graduate Leadership Program is a competitive program designed to provide doctoral students with experiences & training beyond the research lab, to better prepare them for the wealth of opportunities available to them, including careers in academia, policy & public service, and business.

The Yale AGLP has three distinct parts:

  1. Leadership Development – Progression through a curriculum of seminars, experiential learning, reflections and mentorship on research-based leadership practices built on leadership competencies and emotional intelligence methodologies, spanning 26 topics
  2. Internal Internships – Part time assignment for one semester in the office of a senior Yale leader where AGLP Fellows participate as members of that leader’s team to address issues and contribute to projects
  3. Professional Development – AGLP Fellow-directed funding for professional workshops, conferences, and other professional development activities (including career coaching and skills-development)

As an example of the Leadership Development seminars, the Leadership Competency “Accountability and Responsibility” seminar is available here.
