Centre for Strategic Leadership
Director: Dr. Greg Irving, Professor of Organizational Behaviour and Human Resource Management (SBE)
The mandate for the Centre for Strategic Leadership (CSL) is to serve as a focal point for strategic leadership grant proposal development and research. CSL aims to place WLU at the forefront of leadership research by acting as a focal point for research in leadership. It will a) promote WLU's considerable expertise and accomplishments in leadership related scholarship (e.g., expertise in developing and managing human capital in the Management and Organizational Behavior Area in SBE) and b) expand our capacity for strategic leadership research by: encouraging and coordinating interdisciplinary theoretical and applied leadership research (e.g., assisting with the development of research proposals); publishing an interdisciplinary strategic leadership working paper series; organizing and hosting a strategic leadership conference, roundtables, and speaker series to help network academic scholars, members of the business community, and government.
