Becoming Involved

Our programs are open to any college or university which commits to:

  • bringing students to our student seminars
  • sending faculty/administrators to our faculty programs
  • working with us to develop more tailored local programs, such as workshops or short seminars focusing on specific institutional needs
  • or any combination of the above

Some institutions focus initially or solely on the institutional/faculty development aspect while others see Alliance programs as primarily an opportunity for student learning and travel.

It is possible to become involved with the Alliance by initially sending a smaller number of students or faculty/administrators to one of our programs in order to get a sense of our work and ascertain if and how a deeper partnership and larger commitment might be possible and beneficial.



Costs of participation* (as of 2018)

  • US$1,900 per person for student seminars and US$1,400 per faculty advisor accompanying a student group
  • US$2,500 per person for faculty seminars

Alliance Alumna Gives Commencement Speech at University of Hawai'i

In 2014 Annabelle Le Jeune came to our Program as a participant with a group of 50 Miami Dade College students. Last year, she returned to work with us as an Intern on our student programs. It truly was a pleasure to welcome her back. Here's what she said about her commencement speech:" "It took nearly 24 years, but at the end of 2017 I finally weaved my own story together and shared it in front of thousands of people—something I’ve never done before. I was nervous, I was excited, and most of all, honored. This 7-minute speech was composed of lifelong confusion, challenges, worldly opportunities, and the little things. If you know you know. I’m still overwhelmed by all the feedback, and still so happy to have represented my Fall class of 2017 at UH Manoa."

How Tough Is It to Change a Culture of Harassment? Ask Women at Ford

"In recent months, as women have spoken out about harassment - at media companies and technology start-ups, in the entertainment industry and on Capital Hill - they have spurred quick action, with accused men toppling from lofty positions, corporations pledging change and lawmakers promising new protections. But much less attention has been focused on the plight of blue-collar workers, like those on Ford's factory floors. After the #MeToo movement opened a global floodgate of accounts of mistreatment, a former Chicago worker proposed a new campaign: "#WhatAboutUs." NY Times
