On December 12, 2012, Georgetown University's School of Continuing Studies announced the official launch of the Institute for Transformational Leadership (ITL), an international center for "inquiry, research, and education about the nature and requirements of leadership in the 21st century."
The announcement was the highlight of the annual Leadership Coaching Alumni Conference, held December 12-13, at the Maritime Institute in Linthicum, MD. The conference, entitled "Crossing the Threshold: The New Context for Coaching," also featured speakers, seminars, and programs on emerging leadership topics.
Georgetown began offering leadership courses in 2000, and its leadership program was certified by the ICF in 2003. With the launch of the ITL, the university will be able to emphasize innovation, research, and creation of new models for leadership education and best practices, as well as offer advanced courses and seminars.
