Who We Are

Leadership at Michigan

The University of Michigan (U-M) has long considered itself home to the “leaders and best.”

Located at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business, our center serves as an important bridge between student learners and thought leaders in both research and practice. The cornerstone of our teachings is the Michigan Model of Leadership, a model based on 50 years of research generated at U-M. Our award-winning, multidisciplinary board of faculty champions regularly contribute new ideas to the scholarly study of leader development. Our students and alumni regularly engage with one another at Sanger programs to help each other continue to develop as leaders at U-M and beyond. We aim to have a deep impact on the world by graduating students who will lead with their values at the forefront and with a mindset that they can always learn new skills and grow on their leadership journey.

Through programming curated and led by our team of faculty and staff members, curricular integrations based on the expertise of affiliated researchers, and a future-forward mindset supported by a board of executive professionals, the Sanger Leadership Center is proud to continue building on a tradition of excellence.
