When I create an alert to send email, the from address in my outlook looks like this: Institute

Institute is the list that triggered the email. I know I can change the email from in Central Admin, but can I change the [Institute] piece to be something meaningful? This email goes out to the Board of Directors and if they receive an email from Institute <Admin@MyCompany.org> they delete it becuase it doesnt make sense to them.

Would something as simple as changing the list name do the trick? –  PirateEric Jun 7 '12 at 20:34

You might could modify this by implementing your own AlertNotifyHandler and override the OnNotification method to modify the SPAlertHandlerParams.Headers["from"] value.
