Chicago and Mid-West USA
Chicago, as America’s second city, has been a major industrial and financial hub since the 19th century. Today it is a world city that is home to almost 10 million people and over 30 higher education institutions. While several UK HEIs have developed collaborative activities with HEIs in this region of the US, there are many new opportunities. The theme for the Leadership Foundation’s first visit to the mid-West will be Developing Strong HE-Business Civic Relationships.
What is the Agenda?
Over the four-day period you will be active participants in exploring the leadership challenges facing these international higher education systems and how leaders of HEI’s are responding to these demands.
The programme will combine visits to a range of higher education institutions, policy agencies and businesses, with plenary sessions. There will be opportunities to exchange experiences, to network with influential individuals and agencies and to reflect on the relevance and utility of the insights gained for your own institutional strategies and leadership practice.
The learning style is interactive and participative with considerable emphasis on building a network of relationships which can be sustained.
The detailed agenda for both events will be circulated in the early autumn to those expressing interest and there will be opportunities for participants to shape this agenda.
The event will be limited to a maximum of 14 participants. We believe that a group of this size provides the best enviorment for in-depth dialogue and debate.

Feedback from ILDP Atlanta 2012
"a very educational and thought provoking trip"
Craig Gaskell, University of Hull
"It is an honor to open our doors to such distinguished guests, and to initiate a dialogue among institutions of higher learning is a benefit to all involved.
Learning about the colleges and universities in the United Kingdom brought a unique perspective to our own mission - something which we seek to understand as SCAD continues to adapt to a global environment."
