20 Years of Impact

20 Years of Impact and Counting!

20 Year Impact

Over 20 years ago, the Center for Positive Organizations (CPO) was founded at the University of Michigan Stephen M. Ross School of Business to provide a focus and impetus for scholarship and teaching. Over the years, we’ve developed engaging opportunities to spark debate, compel action, and inspire further research. Today, as the world prepares for a new time, CPO is reaching a new level as the preeminent hub for the science and practice of thriving organizations. We are actively and passionately helping prepare the organizations of today, create the leaders of tomorrow, and build a sustainable future of meaning for all.
