The Graduate Institute Changes Leadership

Michael Pergola has been named President of the Graduate Institute. He succeeds A. Harris “Bud” Stone, EdD, who will remain as Chancellor of the Institute.

Stone, a life-long innovator of educational programs, founded the Institute in 1999, but felt the time was right for the next generation of leaders to provide new energy to take the Graduate Institute to its next level of development. The Graduate Institute’s mission is to provide adults the opportunity to earn master's degrees and graduate certificates in contemporary and emerging fields of study such as Integrative Health and Healing, Learning and Thinking, Consciousness Studies, Organizational Leadership, Writing and Oral Tradition, Ecotherapy and Cultural Sustainability and several coach training programs.

“The Graduate Institute will continue in its commitment to provide adult learners with not just rigorous academics, but opportunities to change both themselves and the world” said Pergola. "The institute was founded with the belief that education can inspire people to find creative solutions to pressing challenges. Our team is excited to help continue that mission, as well as make the school's commitment to education, community and creative inquiry even stronger.
