NLI Overview

The Noyce Leadership Institute (NLI) hones leadership talents of executives in organizations that seek to engage their communities with science. 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 envisions an essential and transformative role for organizations that engage citizens of every age in understanding crucial science issues. Leaders of such innovative hubs will be supported and challenged by the Noyce Leadership Institute to make the individual, organizational and community changes required to realize the vision.

From 2008-2015, 123 Fellows and 94 Sponsors participated in NLI. These individuals represent 95 institutions from 21 nations; these numbers continue to grow as NLI Alumni move in their careers. The active phase of the Noyce Leadership Fellowship concluded with the seventh and final cohort in 2015. Currently, the Alumni network continues to engage in shared learning opportunities.
