Welcome to the Center for Excellence in Public Leadership

CEPL Executive Director Jim Robinson.

The Center for Excellence in Public Leadership is committed to developing public leaders who make a positive difference in their organizations and the lives of the people they serve.  For us, this means that we, in turn, must seek to make a positive difference in our students' lives and their professional capabilities so that their impact and influence are deepened and expanded.  Our experience has taught us that, for our leadership development programs to have the impact we desire they must integrate challenge and support, real-world action projects and opportunities for reflection, individual stretch assignments and peer learning support, and safe spaces for experimentation with new thinking approaches and leadership behaviors. 

Perhaps, as important as all of the above, is the partnership and commitment from organizations that are willing to sponsor the development of their leaders by serving as project champions, strategic mentors, providers of opportunities for stretch assignments, and teachers who share their accumulated wisdom.  In turn, our commitment is that, through partnership, we will provide leader development programs that support the organization's strategic initiatives and make sustained impacts. 

We look forward to opportunities to partner with you and make a real and lasting difference for you and those you serve.

CEPL Mission Statement

The Center for Excellence in Public Leadership develops public leaders who make a positive difference in their organizations and for the people they serve.
