Standard Package

The Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership (MSL) is priced to balance our dedication to providing high-quality data with sensitivity to the financial pressures faced by academic institutions.

The Standard MSL package is our best value for most institutions. It provides a robust set of services, while ensuring that schools are not paying for additional enhancements that they do not need.

***Below is the pricing and content of the 2012 Standard Package.  Please note that the 2015 pricing and content has yet to be determined.

The MSL 2012 Standard Package costs $3,600. It includes:
