Leadership in the 21st century demands vision, a sense of purpose, cross-cultural fluency, and innovation. The Center for Innovation and Leadership (CIL) provides opportunities for the Swarthmore community to develop the skills to lead, innovate and create value, promoting ethical leadership and creativity invested in the public good.
The CIL strives to give members of the Swarthmore community the individualized support they need to become effective leaders. We create opportunities to hone leadership skills in team-based collaboration and develop inventive thinking processes. Students, staff, and faculty are all welcome to explore new and interesting ideas under the umbrella of the CIL.
