LCI is about leadership in action
CLIR and EDUCAUSE are pleased to announce the Leading Change Institute Class of 2013! Click here to see the list of participants.
The Leading Change Institute, successor to the Frye Leadership Institute, engages leaders who seek to further develop their skills for the benefit of higher education. The Institute explores higher education challenges, empowering librarians and information technologists to initiate conversations and take action on issues of importance not just to their individual institutions, but to the entire higher education community. Higher education requires leaders, particularly in the information sector, who can inspire, advocate, and advance needed change.
The Leading Change Institute's curriculum is based on three guiding principles:
- Participants learn how to be part of a collaborative community that takes leadership on critical issues.
- Participants develop the skills to build public will, set an agenda for change, and advocate for needed change.
- Participants learn by doing through engagement with real-world issues.
Through a seminar approach, Institute participants will focus on specific issues as they seek to develop new kinds of thinking to foster collective action. They will deconstruct the issues, craft arguments to re-conceptualize what is happening in higher education, and catalyze action through collaborative projects.
