Community of Practice
More than a decade ago the Excellence with Integrity Institute and The Robert D. and Billie Ray Center at Drake University created a partnership to advance our respective visions and missions. Together, we pursue strategic opportunities in youth leadership, employment and STEM readiness, athletics, education, and organizational development in community and workplace environments.
The Institute’s main focus is on research and development of instructional resources, assessment solutions, and tools and strategies for organizational culture development. The Ray Center’s main focus is on coaching, training, and expanding our collaborative implementation projects across Iowa and the nation.
Our partnership with the Excellence with Integrity Institute has catapulted our work to new heights in the field of civility, character development and ethical leadership over the last decade. From early childhood to the corporate and community environment we work together with a consortium mindset to set shared goals and aligned strategies to transform lives and strengthen communities.
