Call for Papers

The Kravis Leadership Institute is in the process of strategically evaluating our activities, resources, and future direction. The Leadership Review is one of the activities under evaluation. As a result, we will produce a Spring 2011 issue for which submissions have been received. Our intention is to suspend future Leadership Review publications; therefore, we are not accepting submissions at this time. Thank you for your interest.
