In 2012, the Leading Change Institute was launched as the successor to the Frye Leadership Institute. While offering an updated curriculum, the Leading Change Institute is driven by the same goals that inspired the first Frye Institute in 2000: to prepare and develop the next generation of leaders in libraries, information services, and higher education by engaging those 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. The 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.
The Leading Change Institute’s curriculum is based on three guiding principles:
Through a seminar approach, Institute participants will focus on specific issues as they seek to develop new kinds of thinking to foster collective action. They will deconstruct the issues, craft arguments to re-conceptualize what is happening in higher education, and catalyze action through collaborative projects.
The missions of CLIR and EDUCAUSE, CLIR’s partner in this initiative, reinforce the importance of partnership, learning, and collaboration reflected across the Leading Change Institute experience.
