Senior Executive Institute

The Senior Executive Institute/LEAD programs offer intensive, interactive learning for local government officials in a supportive culture at UVA’s renowned Colgate Darden School of Business. The curriculum, designed by specifically for and by senior local government managers and the faculty at UVA’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service, takes a head-on approach to the challenges of government management and leadership.


  • The Senior Executive Institute: a two-week program tailored to the needs and concerns of the top local government executive.
  • LEAD: a one-week mid-management program is designed for department and division heads and senior staff and complements the perspectives and focus of SEI, making it possible for entire teams of leaders to prepare to design, develop, and support high performance throughout their organizations.
