For the Common Good

For the Common Good: Redefining Civic Leadership is about the ideas that drive the work of the Kansas Leadership Center.

Cultivating Civic Leadership in Kansas

The Kansas Leadership Center was launched with a $30 million grant from the Kansas Health Foundation, with the ambitious but exhilarating charge of cultivating civic leadership across Kansas. To the Foundation, the connection between vibrant civic health and more traditional notions of sound physical and mental health is a strong one: If civic leadership is enhanced, the Foundation believes Kansas communities naturally will become healthier places.

The Journal

The Journal, published quarterly by the Kansas Leadership Center, inspires leadership for the common good. People all over Kansas are leading on tough challenges and The Journal tells their stories. Each issue of the magazine features provocative writing, photography, artwork and design, and explores “big ideas” about leadership and civic life.
