Muslim Institute for Leadership and Empowerment (MILE)

2019 Spring MILE Cohort 


We will empower Muslim students at the University of Virginia to become active, engaged, informed and vocal leaders at the University of Virginia and beyond. Our workshops, projects, mentorship, and networking opportunities will be uniquely tailored to the particular needs of this marginalized group, and complement other university initiatives to create a more inclusive community of leaders on grounds.



A cohort of approximately 20-30 underclassmen and transfer students, irrespective of background, who meet for ten, two-hour weekly sessions in January, February, March, and April for leadership development. There will be workshops, projects, lessons, guest speakers, networking opportunities, personal development, a beginning-of-the-year reception, and an end-of-year graduation celebration.


How to Apply:

Applications for the Spring 2019 cohort are closed.  The application for the spring 2020 cohort should be available by October.
