The Noyce Leadership Institute (NLI) hones the leadership talents of executives in science centers, children’s museums, and related institutions. NLI is committed to expanding the impact of these organizations in their communities by increasing the capacity of their leaders to manage change, focus outward, engage peers, and form key partnerships.
NLI’s change theory posits that skilled, forward-looking leaders are essential if our world is to have thriving, high-impact, publicly relevant hubs for informal science education and learning for all ages. In the end, these vital hubs are where youth are encouraged to choose careers in science or at least reduce their fears of math and technical fields, and where adults are helped to understand the crucial role science plays in their everyday lives and decision-making.
Including the 2013-2014 cohort, 105 Fellows and 76 Sponsors have participated in NLI. These individuals represent 80 institutions from 25 nations. The current Fellows (Cohort 5) will conclude the active phase of the program in April 2013. The 2013-2014 Fellowship (Cohort 6) began March 2013.
