National Leadership Institute

Thank You for Your Support

The National Leadership Institute would like to sincerely thank the thousands of managers, executives, and individual contributors we have had the privilege and distinct honor to serve and support since our founding in 1979.

It is with heavy hearts that we must inform our community of leaders, partners, and associates that effective January 13, 2017, the National Leadership Institute permanently closed its doors. NLI is no longer offering programs or services of any kind.

We want to take this opportunity to encourage each organization and individual to continue along the path of lifelong learning and maintain the commitment to ongoing leadership development.

For future support and leadership development programs, consider exploring the Center for Creative Leadership.

The faculty and staff of NLI wishes you and your organization success and prosperity in all your future endeavors.

Until we meet again.

Warmest regards,
The National Leadership Institute


Are there other staff leadership programs in the area?

There are many leadership vendors, online programs, classes, and coaches in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area and around the country. We recommend that you research programs and services that best address your organizational needs. NLI had a long partnership with the Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro, North Carolina, so that might be a good place to start.

Will NLI be functioning on its own outside of UMUC?

No. NLI was a part of UMUC and will not deliver programs and services on its own.

How can I contact the NLI trainers from my program?

NLI utilized the services of adjunct faculty members who manage their own private practices. We are unable to identify particular trainers for individual programs. You may be able to find them through an Internet search.
