Leading Change Institute logo and attendees

Welcome to the Leading Change Institute

Exciting news: In 2023, CLIR and EDUCAUSE plan to take a hiatus to substantively assess the Institute and to launch an updated program in summer 2024. As in 2010, when an earlier program refresh saw the Frye Leadership Institute evolve into the Leading Change Institute, we will extensively consult with program alumni and leaders in the field of higher education throughout the process, so you can expect to be hearing from us again during the coming year.  

If you’re interested in attending or sending a staff member to a future Institute, we encourage you to sign up for our mailing list to be informed of updates. We’ll also post news here on our website. And if you have questions or feedback you’d like us to take into consideration, please reach out to Lizzi Albert at lalbert@clir.org. 

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 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.
