Leadership for Public Purpose Classification


The Carnegie Elective Classifications Team, with guidance from the Carnegie Foundation, is partnering with the Doerr Institute for New Leaders at Rice University to establish an improvement process for colleges and universities in Leadership for Public Purpose. 

The proposed improvement process we are building together begins with an elective classification for institutions seeking to be recognized by the Carnegie Foundation for exceptional commitment to leadership development and education.

This new Elective Classification will begin the process of creating an institutional and sector-level continuous improvement process, grounded in the identification and sharing of best practices in leadership education and development that can be transformative for higher education.
