Community Leaders Institute (CLI): A critical factor in the success of community development is a well-informed community. “Action” occurs when those with authority assume an informed and active leadership role. The purpose of this Institute is to help these leaders know how to access and obtain the information necessary for making good decisions, and then communicate that information to the citizenry.

This Institute focuses on the unique relationship between environmental protection, human health, environmental justice and economic development.
