Scholars-in-Residence

The Leadership Center identifies and recruits scholars involved in significant research and writing on leadership issues pertinent to the mission of the Center. The Scholars-in-Residence program brings scholars and public intellectuals to the campus, providing them the opportunity for concentrated work on research projects that serve as a resource for instruction, development, publication and training.
