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 lecture, small group discussion, and interactive classes.
The Intensives are complemented by a host of distance-based learning opportunities including expert-led monthly conference calls and webinars, access to on-line learning modules, and recommended readings.
Additionally, each scholar participates in professional coaching, mentoring, and peer coaching opportunities spread throughout the program.
Finally, scholars work on an applied group-based project of their choice throughout the year. The project, presented at Graduation, is intended to be a practicing ground for the enhanced skill set offered in the Institute.
