The Center for Integrative Leadership seeks to foster cross-sector and boundary-spanning leadership to address significant societal challenges (sometimes called Grand Challenges) for a greater good.
Each academic year the Center for Integrative Leadership invites a small number of highly accomplished leaders from the private sector, academia, government and the non-profit sector to join us as Executive Leadership Fellows. Fellows bring their experience and expertise to contribute to the life of the Center and the University and in turn benefit from being a part of the University community.

December 11, Freeman Commons - Humphrey Center (bagels and coffee will be provided)
History documents the "what," but we want to know about the "how" and "why" behind important leadership decisions.
About the project: CIL in partnership with Executive Leadership Fellow Patrick Coleman of the Minnesota Historical Society has worked with an interdisciplinary group of graduate students to research and conduct a first-person, substantive oral history of Minnesota governors, including their experiences in collaborating across party and sectoral boundaries. This oral history will be a University resource and will be offered to the Minnesota Historical Society for their permanent public affairs holdings. Coleman is also working with others to explore a similar project related to Minnesota women leaders during the 1970s and 1980s.
About the session: Join Patrick Coleman and the graduate students conducting the interviews to discuss their experience and lessons learned. Also, hear excerpts from the Lieutenant Governor Marlene Johnson and Governor Arne Carlson interviews.
Recruiting new students:
CIL is accepting applications for students in spring semester to research and conduct a first-person, substantive oral history of former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty as well as Reatha Clark King and Minnesota women leaders. More info here.
