Andrew N. Liveris Academy for Innovation and Leadership

Current global challenges require sustained, rapid innovation on a broad scale, and the leadership to ensure implementation to effect societal change.

The Andrew N. Liveris Academy for Innovation and Leadership will provide the environment and programs to deliver a pipeline of effective and creative leaders for the digital era with the capacity to contribute to a sustainable future.

The Andrew Liveris Building will be the new home of the Liveris Academy, opening in 2021.

“There are three qualities all good leaders share: Urgency, Curiosity and Competitiveness. But when a person brings their basic human decency to each one of these qualities, you get the difference between a good leader and a great one capable of actually changing things for the better.”
