National Rehabilitation Leadership Institute

Institute Mission Statement:

To enrich and expand the leadership vision, knowledge and skills of rehabilitation leaders, through powerful organizational learning experiences that reinforce passion, learning, creativity, and strategic thinking in the public program of vocational rehabilitation.

The Institute offers the opportunity for rehabilitation leaders in the public program of vocational rehabilitation across the nation to enrich their knowledge, skills, and understanding to meet the constantly changing needs and expectations of their consumers, employees, employers and community partners.

The Council of State Administrators for Vocational Rehabilitation (CSAVR), the National Council of State Agencies for the Blind (NCSAB) and the Workforce Innovation Technical Assistance Center (WINTAC) are co-sponsors of the Leadership Seminar Series. These exciting partnerships strengthen the long-standing working relationship with NRLI and past and current participants.

The Executive Leadership Seminar Series

Four one-week Seminar sessions are offered over a 10 to 12-month period, for directors, senior administrators, and emerging senior leaders in the public rehabilitation program. The instructional approach uses a cohort model that builds on creating and sustaining a learning community for the participants.

The nomination of persons who meet the selection criteria is vested in the Designated State Unit’s Administrator. The NRLI staff recommends that the participants have demonstrated the ability to lead changes within their organization. The first and second Seminar sessions are held in San Diego, California. The third Seminar session is held in Washington, D.C.  The final Seminar session is held in San Diego, California. More Info...
