The Chronicle of Philanthropy recently highlighted ESC's Leadership Institute as a smart idea in nonprofit management. The program prepares aspiring nonprofit executive directors and senior management to assume leadership roles. 

The Leadership Institute is a collaborative program with the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network (YNPN) of Chicago, and aims to address leadership gaps as the boomer generation retires by preparing up-and-coming talent with practical nonprofit management and governance knowledge.
