True leadership is not about prestige, power or status, it is about personal responsibility and personal engagement…It is about collaboration and community. —Marilyn Carlson Nelson
Each year CIL brings together a diverse, multi-disciplinary team of ten graduate students from across the University of Minnesota’s graduate and professional schools to explore and advance the concept of integrative leadership – a key emerging leadership competency for the 21st century. These students are selected every September through a competitive application process. The next application process will be open in late May 2012.
Benefits of participation include:
This year’s Student Leadership Team has initiated the first of an annual award for graduate student papers on integrative leadership. The submission deadline has been extended. The new deadline is April 25, 2012, after which the submissions will be reviewed by the Student Leadership Team. All current University of Minnesota students in good standing who are enrolled in post-baccalaureate programs and working towards a doctoral, master’s, or professional degree are welcome to participate.
Danielle, a Master’s of Public Policy student at the Humphrey School, is the recipient of the 2012 CIL Student Paper Award. Her winning paper, A Catalyst for Change? Collaborative Leadership and the Children’s Cabinet: Two Decades of Governance ,, explores collaborative leadership and the Minnesota Governor’s Children’s Cabinet from the time of the Carlson administration and the current Dayton administration. Danielle provides a critical analysis of past governance methods in order to illuminate lessons learned and maintain focus on how to best provide multi-sector services to children and families. She makes the case for a multi-level governance model to support multi-sector approaches to public policy education, development and evaluation.
