ABOUT NATIONAL URBAN FELLOWS
National Urban Fellows seeks to inspire excellence and diversity in public service leadership. Founded in 1969 to counter the under-representation of people of color and women in leadership, National Urban Fellows is one of the oldest leadership development organizations in the United States. The Organization's range of mid-career leadership development programs include an a 14- month MPA fellowship, a career acceleration program for leaders on the rise in public service sectors and a life-long alumni network. In 2010, National Urban Fellows issued a call to action resulting in the Public Service Leadership Diversity Initiative, a collaborative national network that will create the awareness of the need for leadership diversity, while developing a pipeline of people of color and women who are prepared for public service leadership. National Urban Fellows develops the leadership for a changing America. For more information visit www.nuf.org
