Centers and Projects

J.M. Huber Institute for Learning in Organizations

The J.M. Huber Institute for Learning in Organizations was established in 1999 to advance the state of knowledge and practice for learning and change in organizations. The Institute's research focuses on ways in which strategic organizational learning and knowledge creation and sharing enhance performance and change.

Working through partnerships with diverse organizations -- including business, schools, government and not-for-profit agencies -- the Institute conducts organizational assessments and action research. Its tools enable organizations to get faster results and better decisions by leveraging learning to improve performance.

The Institute and its partners work together to create and share knowledge and practical solutions. The Institute is located at Teachers College, Columbia University in New York City. The Huber Institute was created through a grant from the J.M. Huber Corporation. J.M.
