Towson University is launching the Dr. Nancy Grasmick Leadership Institute, an interdisciplinary engaged research and practice institute, in summer 2021. The institute’s goal is to forge a new standard of innovative practice and pedagogy that advances the development of leadership for the region, state and nation.
“Everyone is hungry for great leaders,” Grasmick says. “The success of individuals, of corporations, of government — all of these entities need great leadership.” Grasmick is a Towson University alumna, presidential scholar and served as state superintendent of the Maryland State Department of Education from 1991–2011.
The institute will offer development programs, coaching and counsel and organizational support services for individuals as well as teams of leaders. It will also sponsor research and events to advance the practice of leadership. The institute builds on Towson University’s ongoing commitment to community and business engagement while serving as a key regional and state anchor institution positioned to support leadership recruitment, development and retention.
