Support Our Work

The Center for Collaborative Leadership, although housed at the College of Management within the University of Massachusetts Boston, is a self-funded organization. 


One of the most important aspects of the Center for Collaborative Leadership is that we enhance cross-sector networking. In our research we found that leadership development strategies that work for businesses also work for nonprofits and for those in the public sector—all face similar issues and all benefit from knowing and working with those in other sectors. Our Emerging Leaders Program fellows find enormous value in expanding their networks so that emerging leaders in business network more frequently with those in nonprofits and with those in other business fields. The synergies created are an unanticipated but profound finding. When emerging leaders become more familiar with other sectors, understanding is enhanced and new and lasting connections are forged.

The center offers multiple ways to support our work:
