The Leading Change Institute brings together information sector leaders, including deans, librarians, and information technologists who seek to inspire, advocate for, and advance change in in today’s increasingly ambiguous and rapidly changing higher education environment.

Since 2000, the Institute has taken on critical issues in higher education, such as new sources of competition, use of technology in teaching and learning, distance learning, changing modes of scholarly communications, and the increasing focus on the student experience.

Institute Fellows, together with the deans and other thought leaders from the community, contemplate the impact of all of these issues and discuss effective approaches to leading during change. Speakers from a wide range of disciplines then bring real-life issues being faced in their institutions and the Institute Fellows are challenged to devise and propose solutions.

Sign up for the LCI mailing list to receive updates about LCI, including important news and dates/deadlines.
