Nelson and Sue Andrews
Institute for Civic Leadership
Founded in October 2010 to build on the legacy of Nashville leader Nelson Andrews, the Nelson and Sue Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership engages emerging and current leaders in programs to create thriving communities. The institute promotes and showcases government, business and not-for-profit leaders working together for the common good. Its programs provide for the study and practice of this collaborative civic leadership model and are based on the belief that civic leaders can be developed to intentionally create great communities.
Civic leadership is, at its core, local, and while it is housed on the campus of Lipscomb University, the institute has a broader community reach. Through its “Leading Voices” website (leadingvoices.lipscomb.edu), local, national and international leaders and scholars participate in conversation to find and replicate common-good solutions to community building. Timely questions on current challenges and opportunities encourage lively community dialogue and online collaboration.
