Community Leaders Institute


The Community Leaders Institute (CLI) is a leadership development training program offered over five consecutive weeks in February-March. The goal is to build research and leadership skills that the individual can use to improve or develop a health program. Training sessions are designed to build leadership and research/program evaluation skills in the following areas: Grant Writing; Accessing Public Datasets; Program Evaluation; Quality Improvement; Survey Development & Assessing Community Health Needs; Design Thinking; and Research Ethics. Participants receive a small grant ($1,500–$2,000) and have the opportunity to apply the skills learned to a health-related project (to be completed over the next 12 months).

Program administrators, organizational leaders, community physicians and other key program staff who want to gain skills in program evaluation/research and network with other community agencies/practices should apply as Community Leaders. Unpaid volunteers at community organizations or agencies should apply as Community Health Advocates. Members of CCTST partnering institutions (University of Cincinnati, CCHMC) may apply as Auditors and are accepted on a limited basis.​
