Welcome to the Center for Integrative Leadership
The Center for Integrative Leadership seeks to catalyze, support and inform collaborative action to address significant and solvable societal challenges.
What is integrative leadership?
Shared leadership can take many forms to create coordinated action for public good.
Leading Across Sectors to Address Grand Challenges
Formerly offered as the Integrative Leadership Seminar, the redesigned Leading Across Sectors to Address Grand Challenges course teaches graduate and undergraduate students the skills to work across boundaries to solve complex social problems as part of the UMN Grand Challenges Curriculum.
Bagels Beyond Boundaries
Bagels Beyond Boundaries provides an informal space for students, staff and faculty to engage in discussion over bagels and coffee. Speakers from different sectors illuminate examples from their own experience or research on ways to bring people together across boundaries to address a particular issue.
We represent the commitment of the University of Minnesota’s policy, business, public health, education and law schools to shared leadership for public good.
We believe hybrid approaches offer promising solutions to complex challenges.
We seek to contribute expertise and capacity to understanding, organizing and sustaining intersector, interdisciplinary, and other cross-cutting efforts to address significant and solvable issues.
We proudly share the University of Minnesota’s overarching goal of enhancing individual and community capacity for a changing world.
