CLIR and EDUCAUSE host regular chat sessions for all alumni of the Leading Change/Frye Leadership Institutes.

The discussions are moderated by the Institute’s deans, Joanne Kossuth and Elliott Shore, and focus on a variety of topics of interest to alumni. These sessions are private and only those who have attended the Institute may participate. Invitations and reminders for the chats are issued through the all-alumni community group (see below). Questions about forthcoming chats can be sent to Lizzi Albert.

As of September 2021, Institute fellows are entitled to join the Institute’s alumni community group, which is hosted by EDUCAUSE through their EDUCAUSE Connect platform. The group is private and may only be joined by those who have participated in the Institute, so all requests to join are handled by CLIR and EDUCAUSE. 

Several cohorts also have individual community groups, enabling those who went through a particular Institute together to stay in touch with their “class.” Beginning in 2022, each cohort will have its own community group established when the new group of participants is announced.

Questions about participation in or use of the community groups can be directed to Lizzi Albert (CLIR) or Veronica Diaz (EDUCAUSE).
