Center for Innovation and Change Leadership (CICL)

The Center for Innovation and Change Leadership at Suffolk University helps people and organizations embrace change through collaboration. We invite you to learn more about our work here.

"The ability to embrace change is essential to success in any profession. Organizations and people today must be aware of external influences affecting their business and react to these changes or be left behind. They must also be open to new ways of thinking and new approaches to product development or services."

- William J. O’Neill Jr., Dean, Sawyer Business School

CICL Purpose and Mission

  1. Technological and digital change
  2. Global business change
  3. People and social change
  4. Environmental and climate change

We strive to be a “think-and-do” tank that fosters interdisciplinary research, educational initiatives, and community engagement. We view innovation, collaboration, and leadership as driving forces for positive change in the business and public world.
