Welcome to NILIE

In the 21st century, the successful institutions of higher education will be those that are learning new ways of communicating with and motivating faculty, staff, administration and students. The high-performing college of tomorrow is the one that begins managerial and incremental change today. The National Initiative for Leadership and Institutional Effectiveness (NILIE) is an outreach service provided for just this purpose. By conducting research on leadership and institutional effectiveness using specialized surveys, NILIE assists institutions in developing strategies that improve student success through collaborative leadership.
