Learning Format

The yearlong Institute offers a variety of learning styles to meet the needs of all scholars. 

Three onsite Intensives (Kickoff, Midyear, Graduation) anchor the Institute; at each, scholars participate in didactic lecture, small group discussion, simulation experiences and interactive workshops. 

The Intensives are complemented by a host of distance-based learning opportunities including expert-led monthly webinars, access to online learning modules, and recommended readings. 

Additionally, each scholar participates in professional coaching, mentoring, and peer coaching opportunities spread throughout the program. Small groups of scholars form learning clusters to discuss experiences and application of the Institute materials.

Finally, scholars work on individualized leadership development plans tailored to meet their personal development goals.
