The cohort has brought together leaders from human service organizations jointly selected through engagement with the Illinois Partners for Human Service and the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities. Additionally, SIU - Center for Rural Health and Social Service Development will act as the research arm of this cohort. Learn more about the partnership with SIU.


This nine month learning journey is structured as an executive-level, post-symposium, cohort experience by creating an environment that provides content, but ALSO largely draws on the knowledge and experiences of the participants. The cohort participants will utilize the Commitments Assessment tool to develop individual organization transformation plans and engage in peer learning opportunities.
