What You’re Supporting

The Leadership Institute at Purdue Northwest is a growing hub of leadership development in our Region.

We proudly serve the seven counties of Northwest Indiana with professional development programs intended to prepare great leaders who will help assure the region’s vitality and quality of life in the increasingly competitive global environment. Our signature programs have been redesigned through an active relationship with PNW faculty and leadership experts.

Our programs include:

  • Leadership Northwest Indiana, a 10-month program for leaders to help them identify areas for growth with time to intentionally practice their skills. Our goal is that each participant will become a more authentic, vibrant leader who can then share his/her gifts with communities across Northwest Indiana.
  • The Young Leaders Academy, a 6-month program for high school students focused on guiding participants toward professional growth, leadership exposure and civic engagement.
  • Our Leadership in Action seminar series, open to the public, through which regional leaders share insights into topics of civic, cultural and leadership challenges facing the Region.

I hope you share our enthusiasm for the dynamic direction of the Leadership Institute at Purdue Northwest. Please consider a gift to the Leadership Institute to support tuition assistance for people across our region wishing to work on their personal growth but fees inhibit their ability to participate. Change lives today-pass on that gift of leadership.
