About NCLP

Started in 1989, the National Clearinghouse for Leadership Programs (NCLP) advances leadership education in higher education through scholarship, resource-sharing, community-building, and professional development opportunities for leadership educators. NCLP connects faculty, staff, and students across institutions and associations who are dedicated to leadership learning and development initiatives in curricular, co-curricular, and community contexts.
