The Randall L. Tobias Center for Leadership Excellence at Indiana University announces the 2019 class of Tobias Fellows, an exclusive cohort gathered to enhance the leadership skills of high-talent, experienced leaders.

During the year-long program, Fellows receive one-on-one coaching and meet throughout the year for 10 sessions of innovative, experiential programming that is designed to develop unique insights into the complex issues facing executive-level leaders. The program provides intensive study in both the elements and contexts of leadership. The ability to interact with other executives from public, private, nonprofit and academic sectors with experience in civic and organizational leadership is the unique niche of the Tobias Fellows Program.

The Tobias Leadership Center focuses on developing the theory and practice of leaders prepared to examine and confront the challenges of innovation, impact and inclusion on their organizations and communities. This knowledge – designed to help individuals become better leaders within their organizations -- is disseminated through a variety of programs including the Tobias Fellows, the Hazelett Women in Leadership Forum and the Tobias Leadership Center’s new Executive-in-Residence Program.
