Relational Leadership Institute


Relational Leadership Institute is a four-day, intensive, participatory learning experience that focuses on both large group didactic and discussions, as well as practice sessions in small groups that work together throughout the cohort. Participation in all four days is required.


In our efforts to make Relational Leadership programming accessible to everyone in the UNC community, Relational Leadership @ Carolina will offer 10 seats in our in-person Fall 2024 Relational Leadership Institute cohort for $1500 per seat to UNC community members whose sponsoring units are unable to support the regular registration fee of $2750.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Josh Hinson ( with the following:

  • A document from your supervisor confirming that you will be able to attend all four dates, and that your time will be protected during those dates so that you can attend the whole session (i.e., reasonable assurance that you will not be called away during any portion of the session for clinical, teaching, or other duties).
  • A brief statement of your interest in attending a Relational Leadership Institute: How do you hope that the Relational Leadership Institute will contribute to your professional development? What opportunities to implement relational practices do you anticipate having in your current work teams?

Furthermore, we will offer all seats in our Summer 2024 Relational Leadership Institute on Zoom for $750 per participant.
