Civic Leadership Foundation Header


With deep expertise and experience in education, business, and political leadership, CLF founders Dr. Howard Rossman and Dr. David Elias sought to influence the growing movement toward education reform.

Drawing a straight line between the health of our democracy and the quality of our education, Dr. Rossman and Dr. Elias formed a team to design, support, and evaluate programs focused on empowering young people to be successful students as well as effective and responsible leaders and citizens.
