Welcome to the website of the Ernesto Malave Leadership Academy (Malave) at the City University of New York. Here you'll find information about our programs, links to leadership initiatives across CUNY, information about events and community service opportunities, and much more. Our goal is to provide you with a dynamic and interactive web-based resource for leadership education.

Malave is a growing resource for all CUNY students, faculty, and staff. We strive to be a center for global leadership research, education and development, while working to build upon CUNY's great tradition of service to our community, New York City.

The three core programs of the Academy are the Malave Fellows Program, the signature program of the Academy; the CUNY Ambassadors Program which focuses on leadership through advocacy; and CUNY Corps which focuses on leadership through service.

The Academy also hosts the annual Emerging Leaders Conference, open to all CUNY students interested in improving their leadership skills; and the CUNY Student Government Conference for all newly elected student government officials. In addition, Malave hosts the Annual CUNY Student Leadership Awards.

Please feel free to contact us. Your participation, ideas and feedback are critical to the success of the Academy, our students, and our work. As we continue to develop our website, we will be adding more information and new features. We will also continually update our events and news pages, so check back frequently!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Ernesto Malave Leadership Academy, where you change the world!
