The Hendrickson Institute’s mission is to serve current and emerging leaders of society. In addition to traditional scholarships, the Institute has developed a variety of programming on ethical leadership.
Currently the Hendrickson Institute offers programs for businesses, non-profits, the Saint Mary’s community, the Twin Cities and a national audience:
- Hendrickson Forum for Ethical Leadership
- Under-Told Stories Project
- Leadership Breakfast Series
- Minnesota Trade Office Co-Sponsorships
- Hendrickson Institute Grants Program
In 2007 the Hendrickson Institute was moved from Winona to Minneapolis, allowing the expansion of programming within the Twin Cities community.
For more information on these programs, please contact Lindsay McCabe at firstname.lastname@example.org or (612) 238-4219.
The Hendrickson Institute for Ethical Leadership Forum was established by a generous, anonymous donation in 2007. The Forum's purpose is to recognize an ethical leader with an annual award and to educate the Twin Cities community about topics related to ethical leadership in an annual, educational event.
Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota has announced its partnership with the Under-Told Stories Project, which shares stories from some of the world’s most remote locations through PBS NewsHour and other media organizations. The partnership brings Under-Told Stories Director Fred de Sam Lazaro to the University’s Minneapolis campus, provides new learning opportunities to Saint Mary’s students, and is intended to raise awareness for the local ramifications of global issues.
The Leadership Breakfast Series, in partnership with Lurie Besikof Lapidius, LLP, is a monthly breakfast forum for business leaders to learn and explore a variety of dynamics impacting leadership. Some of the past topics are: "Reducing Conflict in the Workplace – A Different Approach," "Motivate through Leadership" and "Building High Performance Cultures: One Person at a Time." Speakers are experienced, knowledgeable professionals who engage the participants through their presentation and open dialogue. The seminars offer an opportunity to network with like-minded leaders.

A partnership has been formed to provide educational opportunities for the community and Saint Mary’s students. This collaborative effort with the Minnesota Trade Office, the Hendrickson Institute for Ethical Leadership and the Schools of Business and Technology results in joint programs that educate on topics of international trade and other business topics. Seminars include “Connecting the Dots on Incoterms: From Contract Negotiation, Through Delivery and Payment” and “The Export Process: An Introduction to Exporting.” The Minnesota Trade Office also supports the Hendrickson Forum Seminar.
The Hendrickson Institute for Ethical Leadership, a university academic and community resource for the exploration of ethical and leadership issues, has announced a grant program open to all Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs faculty, staff, and students. Grants will support a variety of projects such as: curriculum development, professional development, publications, research, organizational collaborations, speakers, special events, workshops, and professional meetings.
