Our Students

Dwayne Maddox

The depth and breadth of the experiences, of the content, the project work, the guest speakers, and the different organizations that we did special projects for really added to the experience from a student perspective. ”

— Dwayne Maddox, LEIOC 2022

Kay Doyle

Often, clients will want to change one thing and it kind of misaligns the whole system. Being able to convey that it’s all part of a system, and it needs to work together is so valuable. Having that language with clients really helps uncover new opportunities. ”

— Kay Doyle, MSLOC 2019, ELOC 2021

Support our Students

Transforming the world's workplaces takes all of us. To realize our mission to equip leaders with the vision, knowledge, and skills to facilitate sustainable, positive organizational transformation, we are working harder than ever to attract and support the full complement of talented leaders we need as partners in this work. This is why in 2021, we launched our TLC Scholarship Fund to actively support students who need financial assistance to attend MSLOC's onsite intensive class sessions in Evanston.

The TLC Scholarship Fund recognizes former MSLOC team member Terri L. Cramer, who over many years generously opened her home to students who needed a place to stay.

Terri was the first person I came in contact with during the information session and although I don't remember what she shared, I remember how she made me feel. I felt like I belonged. She has such a generous heart with a genuine love for others, and I won't ever forget what she did for me. ”
