Marshall Leadership Institute

Transformational Leaders for All Schools

Marshall Leadership Institute is a different type of school leadership organization. Through customized pipeline development and individual leadership coaching, we partner with school communities to nurture transformational leaders who lead with authenticity and harness powerful leadership skills to drive change within their school systems. Today, Marshall Leadership Institute serves over 200 leaders nationwide, partnering with more than 35 schools across five states. Sixty percent of Marshall leaders represent the global majority, and 85 percent of aspiring leaders are in school leadership roles within three years. Notably, 98 percent of Marshall Leadership Institute alumni still work in education. All of our offerings are designed specifically to produce outcomes like these: diverse cohorts of leaders who are equipped to rise into new roles quickly and effectively.

Join us in building a bright future for schools nationwide.
