In this strange and fast-changing time, we are grateful for the students, parents, colleagues, alumni and supporters who have helped to ensure the safety of the ALA community. We salute the health workers and scientists on the front lines, coordinating a global response.

In keeping with national guidance in South Africa, ALA’s learning program will continue online. We are in touch with our alumni studying at universities around the world, and are working to respond to their needs as university residences close.

This global crisis casts the need for ethical, effective and collaborative leadership in sharp relief. We are humbled by the support that, each day, enables our mission to address that need.
