The Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership
Founded in 2010 to build on the legacy of Nashville leader Nelson Andrews, the Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership engages emerging and current leaders in programs to create thriving communities. The institute promotes and showcases government, business and not-for-profit leaders working together for the common good. Its programs provide for the study and practice of this collaborative civic leadership model and are based on the belief that civic leaders can be developed to intentionally create thriving communities.
The master's program in civic leadership can be completed in either one year or 15 months. Evening, weekend and online classes accommodate government, business and not for profit professionals seeking a leadership degree focused on social innovation and collaboration among multiple stakeholders. This program prepares recent college graduates and mid-career students for leadership positions in both their community and their profession. Leaders in every sector will benefit; careers supported by this degree include local, state, and federal government, public policy analysis, corporate public affairs, corporate government relations and lobbying, foundations and philanthropy, community development, urban planning, and social innovation through existing non-profits and the creation of public-private partnerships.
