The mission of the Eli J. & Phyllis N. Segal Citizen Leadership Program is to foster the next generation of citizen leaders. It was established to honor and continue the work of the late Eli Segal ’64, his wife Phyllis, and their commitment to developing new generations of leaders.

The Program is a constantly expanding, intergenerational constellation of citizen leaders working across all sectors, who give each other lifelong support as they devise solutions to society’s most intractable problems. It elevates citizen leadership and service as crucial to the health and well-being of our democracy and communities.
