Leading the Change

In collaborative and transformative learning environments, we give students entrepreneurial skills, strategic rigor, disruptive business acumen and life-changing personal development to respond to a rapidly changing world. The Pinchot name has been synonymous with leadership, innovative strategies and work for the common good for generations, and it will continue to be long into the future.

Our Vision and Mission

We envision a future that works for all. Our mission is to prepare learners from diverse backgrounds to design, lead, and evolve enterprises that contribute to the common good.

Our Values

We focus on personal development and building a lifelong learning community. Our values infuse everything we do and will stay with you long after graduation.


Learners at Pinchot educate one another, in the classroom and beyond. They challenge one another’s assumptions, broaden one another’s range of experience and teach each other to see the world from varied perspectives. This vibrant lifelong network guides alumni through their careers and beyond.


Pinchot fosters an innovative and driven spirit. Ongoing engagement with key industry leaders as faculty, Change Agents in Residence, guest lecturers and trustees allows us a deeper perspective on leveraging innovation for the common good and prepares learners to design and lead pioneering enterprises, businesses and organizations.


Creating a better world requires the utmost integrity, courage and honesty. This is ingrained in our academics, operations, and relationships with students, alumni, faculty, accreditors, board members and the broader community.

Social Justice

Our community is inclusive. We collectively work in pursuit of social justice and the common good. We embrace all forms of diversity in our learners, staff, faculty and Board of Trustees. Our student-led Diversity & Social Justice Committee continually drives us toward further inclusion.


Pinchot is deeply committed to ecological and social sustainability, which infuses our pedagogy, curriculum and community. We prepare our learners to advance sustainability in businesses and organizations. As a leader in higher education, we seek to influence other universities to integrate sustainability into their program design.

Transformational Leadership

While at Pinchot, learners experience a parallel journey of skill development and personal growth. They understand theory, develop skills and gain the personal mastery needed to be instruments of the change they wish to see in the world.
