Center Mission

The Center for Leadership, Innovation and Change (CLIC) is focused on the science and practice of developing leaders who can inspire valuable innovation and foster well-reasoned organizational change. The center is well-situated to forge new approaches to leadership and leadership development with its globally recognized faculty researchers and professors.

Through its exceptional research capabilities and related programs that advance leadership development and the practice of leadership, the center serves a broad audience of executives, managers, scholars, instructors, students, and alumni while also seeking their input.

Through its various initiatives, CLIC seeks to:

  • Showcase emerging new findings and point to the practical implications of vanguard research by center fellows and others associated with the Smith School, including our PhD alums.
  • Partner with organizations in support of critical research on leadership and leadership development issues.
  • Create opportunities for learning and collaboration with outstanding leaders and related practitioners.
  • Foster involvement of alums, students, and friends of the Center in dialogue about leadership development opportunities and lifelong learning.
