The Academy for Responsive Leadership (ARL) is an initiative adapted from Iowa State University. Through this initiative, Michigan Tech's academic leadership will be engaged in workshops, peer to peer learning, and summer reading groups to enhance their abilities to include, support, and empower underrepresented minorities and gender equity at Michigan Technological University.
