Who Should Attend?

The Leading Change Institute is designed for leaders in higher education, including CIOs, librarians, information technology professionals, and administrators, who are interested in working collaboratively to promote and initiate change on critical issues affecting the academy.

Selection to the Institute is competitive. Each class cohort reflects the diverse and dynamic spectrum of experience found in the current higher education workplace. Leaders with at least seven years' experience in the college or university environment are invited to apply, as are those who come from business, governmental or non-profit backgrounds. Because the Institute is continually evolving to reflect and address current issues, those who have attended previous Institutes are also welcome to apply.

LCI fellows are willing and eager to explore different models and take risks. They have a commitment to, and talent for, leadership within higher education. They understand and appreciate the environment outside their immediate surroundings; they strive to build bridges between people, departments and institutions; they are critical thinkers and dynamic and creative problem-solvers. Successful candidates will demonstrate their strengths and leadership ability in these areas in their applications.

Since 2000, more than 650 individuals from the United States and around the world have participated in the Institute.
