Introducing the Leadership & Society Initiative

The Leadership and Society Initiative (LSI) supports accomplished executives in successfully transitioning from their longstanding careers toward purposeful next chapters of leadership for society.

In this yearlong immersion in UChicago’s unparalleled environment of discovery and impact, LSI Fellows envision and launch ambitious futures—for themselves and for the world around them.

The Experience

Know oneself. Understand the world. Envision the future.

The LSI program gives you the time to think critically about where you’ve been and where you want to go next. It’s an opportunity to reflect, reimagine and recharge in one of the most intellectually stimulating places on earth. And while the program lasts just a year, the insights and connections you make are with you for life.

The Curriculum

We give you the space to explore. You determine what your future will look like.

For more than 130 years, the University of Chicago has been home to transformative ideas and breakthroughs. Experience our powerful approach to discovery—enabling you to define the type of work that matters most to you—and changes society for the better. Then devise an action plan to make it happen.

Leadership & Society Symposium

In Autumn 2022, the University will host an invite-only symposium with distinguished executives from around the world who strive toward purposeful next acts. We are currently accepting nominations for distinguished leaders to join for this preview of LSI’s powerful approach to inquiry and impact, and connect with this growing community committed to using their talents toward a better world.
