The College of Saint Rose is excited to announce that President Carolyn J. Stefanco has signed a Memorandum of Understanding for collaboration with the African Leadership Academy (ALA). Based in South Africa outside Johannesburg, ALA is a two-year pre-university leadership program that seeks to transform Africa by identifying, developing, and connecting the continent’s future leaders in ways that lead to social change.
In support of the global outreach efforts outlined in The College of Saint Rose’s 2020 Strategic Plan, this agreement will lead to cross-continent collaborations on leadership development programs, faculty exchange initiatives, and scholarship opportunities for students. Saint Rose has enrolled its first ALA graduate for the incoming Fall 2018 class, and another student will begin at the College in the Spring 2019 semester. It is anticipated that more students will apply and enroll at Saint Rose in the years ahead.
