Museum Leadership Institute at Claremont Graduate University
For over 40 years, the Museum Leadership Institute at Claremont Graduate University (MLI@CGU)—formerly known as the Getty Leadership Institute (GLI)—has served over 1,900 museum professionals from more than 40 countries by advancing thoughtful leadership in the museum field. In 2010, the GLI moved from the Getty Center to CGU, supported by grants from the Getty. The move to CGU offered an opportunity to expand and thrive as a leading international source of continuing professional development for current and future museum leaders in the context of a unique institution of higher education. As planned, MLI became a fully independent institute within CGU in 2020. MLI's current offerings include executive educational programs, special events, and POLARIS, a new nationwide mentoring network for the museum sector.
