About ULAA

The U-Lead Advisory Academy is about inspiring leadership in individuals like you to transform the issues and communities you care about. It's about offering you as an Extension stakeholder the chance to learn new leadership research and tips, explore what Extension is doing around the state and apply the research to build resilient communities in Minnesota. ULAA helps you build a new system of support through your fellow participants and past ULAA participants. This network of Extension supporters, volunteers and collaborators are providing passionate leadership throughout the state.

In 2014, the ULAA program will host its sixth cohort. The program was designed in 2008 in collaboration with Extension's dean and director to reward and inspire Extension's committed advisers, stakeholders and volunteers throughout the state.

ULAA is organized into four dynamic phases including:

  • Phase 1: EXPERIENCE in-depth leadership education
  • Phase 2: APPLY new concepts and ideas
  • Phase 3: SHARE through synthesis, evaluation and commencement
  • Phase 4: RENEW with the ULAA Community of Practice
