What is the New Mexico School Leadership Institute?

The New Mexico School Leadership Institute (NMSLI) was created by the New Mexico Legislature to establish a system of leadership development for New Mexico schools and districts.


  • to assist in recruiting, preparing, mentoring and supporting strong leaders for New Mexico schools

  • to provide professional development and support for school principals and other educational leaders

Defined in a 2009 Senate Joint Memorial, legislation was enacted in 2010 directing NMSLI to create a collaborative infrastructure for strengthening school and district leadership and to help improve student outcomes through recruitment, preparation and professional support.
