Community of Practice
for Faculty

In partnership with NYU Wagner's Research Center for Leadership in Action, the Leadership Initiative is hosting an interdisciplinary Community of Practice for faculty members whose research, teaching or service focuses on leadership and intersecting issues such as education, civic engagement and ethics in business.

Faculty participating in this community of practice will serve as advisors to the Initiative while supporting scholarly work on leadership across the University.

What is a Community of Practice?

Our working definition for a Community of Practice, or Learning Community, is “a group of people sharing a common concern or question or working in similar or related areas, who deepen their knowledge and experience on a given topic by learning together on an ongoing basis as they pursue their work.”

This definition is based on work from NYU Wagner’s Research Center for Leadership in Action, the research partner to the Initiative. To learn more about Learning Communities, please see this report RCLA published with Grantmakers for Effective Organizations.

How do I join?

Faculty and administrators who would like to learn more and participate should email us at Thank you.
