Archives Leadership Institute

The Commission seeks proposals from organizations to continue the Archives Leadership Institute, which it first funded in 200 8. The Archives Leadership Institute seeks to build the capacity of attendees as leaders both in their own institutions and in the archives field.

The NHPRC envisions

a minimum of a one-week program that will tailor contemporary best practices in leadership skills to issues specific to archives professionals.

The grantee will be responsible for all project phases, from curriculum design and development through administering the program for the attendees it selects.

Topics for the Institute may include issues in technology, economics, public policy, and constituent relations, along with practical questions of administration, strategic planning, leading change, and fund raising.

In addition, there should be opportunities for participants to develop solutions to the specific needs of their institutions.

To cover these topics and needs, Institute faculty should include experts and educators in leadership development and organizational management as well as experienced archival leaders.

There are models of such institutes in other fields that will be useful for applicants as they develop their proposals.

Applicants may benefit from looking at these examples:
Getty Leadership Institute for museum professionals Seminar for Historical Administration for administrators of historical sites and museums Leading Change Institute (successor to Frye Leadership Institute) for librarians and library administrators Award Information The Commission expects to make one award for up to three years with the expectation that an institute will take place each year beginning in 201 9. Applicants may propose to host two or three institutes, depending on the total time period of their projects.

The total award will be up to $250,00 0. The Commission requires that grant recipients acknowledge NHPRC grant assistance in all products and publicity that result from its support.
