The Leadership Collaborative curriculum is built upon a solid theoretical and empirical foundation developed through years of research, study and practice related to leadership.  Importantly, it is a praxis-based curriculum, i.e., it facilitates skill development through practice.  Hence, theory is embedded in skills and participants learn through practice, not in studying or researching theory.

‘A dean’s office is inherently hierarchized in ways that can lead folks to forget that college leadership is a role all of us (not just the dean or associate deans) need to focus on.’

‘I like the basic approach of leadership as a shared responsibility and the way the program empowers and challenges employees to make a difference.  That’s a powerful message with many potential benefits for all involved.’
