The IDEA Institute on AI aims to recruit and create a diverse, intellectually robust cohort of Fellows that is engaged in real-world learning experiences, and valuable professional networking among the cohort and with instructors that will continue after the grant-period. In addition, Fellows will have opportunities to learn what it means to be change agents to lead the adoption of  disruptive, transformative technology, while being strategic and agile. As members of two diverse cohorts of leaders (IMLS-funded and self-funded Fellows), they will spark future innovation, collaboration, and dissemination of AI in library and information environments.
