Blue Sky Leaders Certificate

Reimagine leadership by exploring the intersections of personal transformation, global consciousness, and creative action.

The Blue Sky Leaders Certificate program, a new, 10-month leadership intensive from CIIS, engages visionary leaders through an array of seminars, panel discussions, and community-building activities. The program includes five residencies set in the natural beauty of the San Francisco Bay area and an additional five online sessions, culminating in a final capstone project designed to address current global challenges.

Applications for Certificate Programs may be submitted through CIIS' online application platform. Each program has individual requirements, but most require a background and goals statement, resume or curriculum vitae, and an optional scholarship essay. We especially encourage applications from individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous, and people of color, LGBTQIA+, and/or who serve marginalized or under-represented populations.

Applicants will be accepted on a rolling basis until the cohort is full.
