The Leadership Institute at Purdue Northwest is the hub of leadership development in Northwest Indiana. This year’s summit will provide attendees with evidence-based learning experiences to strengthen their leadership skills and equip them with strategies to become better leaders in their careers, communities and personal lives.

Innovation

Unforeseen challenges are inevitable in life and in business. Therefore, today’s ever-changing landscape relies heavily on innovation. Business and community leaders must constantly look for new ways to innovate because many problems cannot be solved with old solutions.
