The Jerry R. Sims WASFAA Management & Leadership Institute (MLI) is WASFAA’s premier training event for financial aid directors, associate or assistant directors, and other professionals who aspire to leadership roles within the student aid profession. MLI offers attendees a unique opportunity to network with their peers in a collaborative and engaging cohort setting, led by experienced faculty who are themselves accomplished leaders within their institutions, and the financial aid community.

You will meet with faculty and your peers in large group training sessions as well as in small group coaching/mentoring sessions to help you sharpen your management skills and enhance your leadership abilities as we look to the future of student aid administration together.
