Learn About Our School

At the School of Leadership Studies, we believe that good leadership can transform people and organizations. So we facilitate authentic, challenging, collaborative, and engaging learning experiences through our leadership programs and our research initiatives.

Our graduate-level programs have been honed over 15 years to continually deliver relevant leadership education that is as much scholarly as it is practical.  We are a thriving hub of researchers, educators, and staff who demonstrate a passion for learning and a commitment to our students getting the most from their leadership journey.
