2019 Civic Leadership Academy

Through March 8, 2019
UChicago Center in Delhi

Mar. 2

The Civic Leadership Academy (CLA) is an interdisciplinary leadership development program for emerging and high-potential leaders in nonprofit organizations and local government agencies within the City of Chicago and Cook County.

CLA was developed by the University's Office of Civic Engagement and Harris Public Policy, in partnership with the University’s other professional schools and the Institute of Politics, as well as Local Initiatives Support Corp. (LISC) Chicago, Civic Consulting Alliance, the City of Chicago, and Cook County. The program is designed to develop a pipeline of talented leaders to help nonprofits and government agencies thrive.
Now in its 5th year, CLA has 119 alumni who are leading agencies and nonprofits that tackle some of the most challenging issues Chicago faces, from transforming neighborhoods to building trust between law enforcement and communities. A brochure with additional information on the program is here.

Following successful visits in 2017 and 2018, the Fellows will again travel to the University of Chicago’s Center in Delhi for a week long global training designed to immerse them in differing perspectives constructed to illuminate civic issues in Chicago and inspire innovative cross-sector collaboration.
