  • Find Fellows from your class or members who are geographically close to you
  • Get connected to students, Fellows and Advisory Board members who share your career or civic engagement interests
  • Have conversations with individuals from diverse backgrounds who are committed to the mission, vision, and values of the Institute
  • Work actively toward addressing issues in Alabama
