Carnegie Foundation Invites IHEs to Participate in iLEAD Project

August 4th, 2017 by


Carnegie Foundation Invites Institutions of Higher Education to Participate in New iLEAD Project. 
The iLEAD Project integrates improvement science principles in leadership development programs.
Many schools of education throughout the country have embraced networked improvement communities (NICs) and improvement science methods, and made changes to their course and program offerings for school and teacher leadership. The Carnegie Foundation seeks to enhance and extend the efforts of these schools so that they may serve as exemplars from which other institutions can learn. 
To help achieve this aim, the Carnegie Foundation is excited to announce the launch of 

iLEAD (Improvement Leadership Education and Development). iLEAD is designed to further the capacities of institutions of higher education (IHEs) and their local education agency (LEA) partners to enact systematic improvement efforts within their organizations and in partnership with one another. 

The Foundation is inviting prospective IHEs to apply for the iLEAD project. 
There will be four iLEAD sessions convened in the 2017-2018 academic year, plus a gathering at the 2018 Carnegie Summit on Improvement in Education in San Francisco. Participants will engage in strategic efforts to further integrate improvement science into the work of their institutions and LEAs. Participants will receive coaching during each session from Carnegie fellows and staff with experience in different aspects of improvement science and NIC initiation and development; participants will also have access to peer support from others in iLEAD.
On Wednesday, August 9, 2017, from 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM Pacific Time, Carnegie will be host a conference call to discuss the project and answer questions about the application process.
Prospective applicants interested in learning more about iLEAD and joining the conference call should complete the following survey.  More information and the iLEAD application can also be found here.
