History of the Levitt Leadership Initiative
Thanks to the generous financial support of Arthur Levitt, Jr. P’81, and the Norman and Rosita Winston Foundation, the Levitt Center began its leadership programming in 2011 with the first Levitt Leadership Institute. The Institute gives selected students across academic disciplines two weeks of hands-on training in personal leadership skills, along with real life challenges to make a positive difference using those skills. The Levitt Center is also leading an effort to incorporate the teaching of leadership skills across the curriculum through hosting faculty workshops and providing course development grants. In addition, Mr. Levitt has provided new funding for public service internships and Levitt Research Group Grants to expand opportunities for team and individual work in public affairs.
