The Getty Leadership Institute at Claremont Graduate University (GLI at CGU) is convening 34 museum leaders from the United States and around the world to engage in the renowned Museum Leadership Institute (MLI), in which participants explore the increasingly complex challenges museums face. This year’s MLI will be held at Claremont Graduate University’s beautiful tree-lined campus in California, from June 2 to 22, 2012.
Now in its 34th year, MLI offers intensive executive education and is the world’s foremost professional development program for senior museum executives. This is borne out through the geographic diversity of the museums represented and the caliber of the program’s participants, who are selected based on their ability to influence policy and effect change at their institutions.
This year’s MLI group includes senior leaders from a wide variety of international museums, including the Toledo Museum of Art, the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, the DuSable Museum of African/American History, the UK’s Science Museum and Royal Academy of Arts, National Museum of Australia, Royal Ontario Museum in Canada, the ARKEN Museum of Modern Art in Denmark, the Hong Kong Science Museum, the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Austria, the Museo del Oro of Banco de la República in Colombia, and the State Museum of Ethnology in Germany.
MLI 2012 participants include not only museum directors, curators and assistant directors, but also those leading museum education, exhibitions, collections, research, development and public programming initiatives – further creating a diversity of perspectives and experiences for group discussions. Additionally, this year’s MLI class features several university museums. A full participant list for MLI 2012 is provided below.
Generously supported by the Getty Foundation, over 1,100 museum professionals from the United States and 30 additional countries have attended since 1979. These individuals are responsible for leading a diverse collection of museums around the world.
MLI faculty come from the top ranks of educational institutions, including the University of Southern California, the Center for Creative Leadership, the Jack Welch Management Institute at Strayer University, and the Claremont Graduate University’s Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management. Course work – covering strategic thinking, organizational behavior and alignment – addresses topics such as building public understanding, leading change, and motivating high performance. Faculty facilitate thoughtful analysis and discussions using case studies and exercises that combine current events and trends with academic theory and best practices.

About the Getty Leadership Institute at Claremont Graduate University
Since 1979, the Getty Leadership Institute (GLI), now part of Claremont Graduate University (CGU) has been providing educational opportunities designed to enhance the leadership of experienced museum professionals and their institutions. GLI’s offerings—including transformative educational programs; convenings of policy makers, academics, and practitioners; and collaborations with international partners—support the museum community by helping current and future museum leaders navigate the field’s most pressing challenges and opportunities. The museum environment is one confronted by ever-changing technologies and philanthropic patterns, competing values, and cultural and global competition. Intensively focused programs bring museum executives together to discover the right questions, set priorities, and think strategically. GLI alumni are better equipped to encourage innovation and creative collaboration, resulting in more relevant and sustainable museums.
