The Leadership Institute brings together scholars, students and other community members to learn about current research in leadership studies through collegial monthly convenings.

Each month during the academic year (September-May) an invited faculty member gives a 30-45 minute presentation about her/his leadership research. The second half of the session is devoted to group discussion so attendees can collectively explore the ideas presented and make connections to theory, practice, and their lived experience.

Purpose of the 2015-16 Colloquia Series

  • To create a community of researchers, practitioners, students and  community members who learn together about cutting edge leadership theory and research
