The mission of the Johnson Institute is to enhance professional and institutional ethics and accountability in public leadership. We accomplish this mission through an integrated portfolio of programs including:
Teaching: The Johnson Institute works with GSPIA and University faculty to integrate teaching of responsible leadership across the curriculum.
Research: The Johnson Institute generates new and usable knowledge on issues of leadership and accountability in public service.
Outreach: The Johnson Institute promotes discussion and debate on timely public policy issues that involve leadership in the public sector.
These three aspects of the Johnson Institute mission work in concert to enhance the quality of public leadership in government, nonprofit, and nongovernmental organizations in Pittsburgh, the Nation, and abroad.
