Mission: Educating Teachers to Teach Leadership to Students.
The Gardner Carney Leadership Institute is dedicated to researching, developing and disseminating a Pedagogy of Leadership®—research based methods, drawing from the fields of brain science, psychology, leadership theory, and teaching and learning, by which teachers can help young people learn to lead.
In 1995, Gardner Lynch Gordon Carney died in a kayaking accident in his senior year at the University of Colorado at Boulder. His family, Jim, Laurie and Winston Carney, established a restricted endowment at the Fountain Valley School in Colorado, in his memory.
