LCI is about leadership in action

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. Higher education requires leaders, particularly in the information sector, who can inspire, advocate, and advance needed change.

Leadership in a changing higher education landscape requires:

  1. The ability to craft and advance vision while keeping the day-to-day moving along.
  2. An understanding of the complexities of that landscape through the lens of what business officers, presidents, trustees are facing, and an ability to translate to institutional context and action.
  3. Skills that can build public will, set an agenda for change, and advocate for needed change.


The Leading Change 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. Fellows in the Institute hear from speakers from a wide range of backgrounds who will share real-life problems from across the higher education landscape for which participants will be challenged to devise and propose solutions.

You gain skills and resources, including a cohort of collaborators, necessary for advancing change. And, through you, your institution will gain numerous approaches to addressing key issues.

The missions of CLIR and EDUCAUSE reinforce the importance of partnership, learning, and collaboration reflected across the Leading Change Institute experience. Further information about the Leading Change Institute may be found on the What is the Program? page.
