Leadership in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities MNLEND
The MNLEND Program is an interdisciplinary leadership training program welcoming Fellows from 16+ disciplines across the University of Minnesota. MNLEND also invites Fellows who are active community members in experientially-based fields, such as Community Advocacy, Family Advocacy, and Self Advocacy, and/or are working professionals in disability-related fields and/or graduate students enrolled in universities other than the University of Minnesota.
The program’s mission is to develop the next generation of knowledgeable, interdisciplinary leaders in the neurodevelopmental disabilities (NDD) field. Postdoctoral, predoctoral, and community fellows are trained to grasp the complexities of and challenges in delivering evidence-based and promising practices, supports, and services across disciplines and settings, enabling them to successfully navigate and collaborate across the many NDD-related fields.
