The start date for the next cohort is January 2022, however admission to the program is continuous. 

 The cohort approach combines a highly interactive online experience and onsite professional opportunities to build and sustain a vibrant learning community.  There will also be on-site events available throughout the three states, including advising sessions and activities at the State Library Associations.
