UU Leadership Institute


UU Leadership Institute:

The Hybrid / Online
Leadership School




How does UU Leadership Institute help me?

It’s more than a webinar!

uuinstitute flipped

UU Leadership Institute uses online technology to create a “flipped classroom” experience. Presentations happen online so that when you are meeting in person, you are using your valuable time in experiential and team learning.  

It’s flexible

Presentations and readings can be accessed on-demand so you can learn on your own schedule.

It’s deep

The flexible format also enables our professional staff to offer both introductory and advanced versions of useful leadership courses.

It’s wide

Different courses are be offered each semester so that you can choose from a wide variety of offerings from the various leadership development competencies.

It’s about your team

Participating as a part of a congregational team can make all the difference in keeping your congregation healthy and vibrant. The low cost and flexibility makes it more accessible than a residential leadership school.

It’s about the connections

As a congregational leader, you already have wisdom and experience. Our process circles and “community of practice” Saturdays will help you connect and share wisdom with UU leaders from other congregations in your area and from around the country.

How does this hybrid / online format work?

We offer a unique formula that integrates course content with your creativity, ideas and experiences. Each semester, you will be able to register for one (or more) of a selection of courses. Participants from the same congregation may select different courses.

Each UU Leadership Institute "semester" has 9 modules, one released every two weeks. Each module will consist of:

· Access to course materials

· A 30-45 minute on-demand webinar by our teaching staff

· Required readings and other resources

· Optional readings and other resources

· A threaded discussion board for communication between participants and staff

· A 30-45 minute "live" Process Circle with the teaching staff

· A short quiz on the materials

Finally, you will also attend three Saturday, in-person, Community of Practice sessions held locally (usually by geographic cluster). These will be facilitated by trained Peer Hosts and will usually run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Each Community of Practice will collaborate on a shared project during the last month of the semester.
