Leadership Academy for Bishops of The United Methodist Church

Leadership AcademyFor four days Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary will host eleven recently elected bishops of The United Methodist Church for the 2013 Leadership Academy.  An adaptation of Garrett-Evangelical's Plus Program, the Leadership Academy is an executive education program created specifically for the bishops elected in 2012.  

A distinct collaboration between Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary and Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, the schedule of events includes sessions with senior faculty from both schools.  Participants will also have the opportunity to hear and learn directly from a variety of Chicago civil servants including Chicago Transit Authority's chief of staff Lydia Murray; First Deputy Chief of Staff for the City of Chicago, Felicia Davis; and the Executive Director of the Cook County Judicial Advisory Council, Juliana Stratton. Morton Schapiro, President of Northwestern University, will also meet with the bishops and discuss transitions in education and the implications for people of faith.

Cohorts for the fall of 2013 are forming now. To learn more, go to www.garrett.edu/plus.
