Innovative Leaders Institute

Lead with STEM

The Innovative Leaders Institute empowers school leaders to transform current practices and bring high-quality STEM education to their students. This year-long professional learning program is designed for school leaders interested in:

  • Creating or strengthening STEM culture and identity in the school buildings they lead
  • Forging strong business and community partnerships and leveraging these relationships to create authentic learning experiences
  • Applying transformational leadership strategies to support their faculty in implementation of STEM instructional approaches
  • Challenging traditional approaches to teaching, learning and assessment

After nearly a decade, the Ohio STEM Learning Network has molded this program into the state’s best way to prepare aspiring STEM school leaders for success. Through this leadership pipeline, we foster new high-quality STEM/STEAM schools and expand STEM education for all students.
