How it Works

Becoming a member of the RiA Community includes several options leading to comprehensive participation in a dynamic community of education professionals from around the world.


Individually and corporately RiA Members will learn and develop together as leaders through a shared experience.

Join a Cohort

Cohort groups consist of members of the RiA Community gathered together for the purpose of leadership enhancement and peer interaction.

What it includes (per two-month period):

  • Three 2-hour cohort sessions

  • Cohorts of up to 12 to 16 members

  • Expert leaders present relevant topics

  • Facilitated by an RiA Cohort leader, either online or in-person (where available)
  • Certificates of completion from Rowland Institute for Advancement

  • CEU credits from an accredited US university
Be Coached

Your next step as an RiA Community member is to begin meeting one-to-one with your RiA Coach.

RiA has a growing number of highly qualified coaches to personally guide you in your leadership and professional development.
