Innovative Leaders Institute

Preparing change-makers to lead innovation in schools across Ohio

Program details

The year-long Innovative Leaders Institute has prepared hundreds of principals and lead-teachers to step forward and create new STEM schools or integrate STEM practices throughout existing schools. Participants learn alongside veteran STEM school leaders.

This cohort-based program covers concepts like how to be an effective leader, manage innovative instruction, and create a culture/climate that fosters the best in STEM learning. Participants engage in structured learning activities on topics such as adaptive and distributive leadership, problem-based learning, meaningful professional development, marketing and partnerships. Each in-person session includes a tour of an innovative school plus a discussion with the school’s leaders. There is no cost to participate in the program.

Apply with your partner in change

We understand that making big shifts requires help. That’s why applicants apply as a team with the principal/assistant principal and another leader in the building.
