RLI Staff

The Salesian Leadership Institute was founded by Frank & Jane Ryan, and inaugurated during the 2005-2006 academic year, through a partnership between the ► Catholic Leadership Institute (Philadelphia), the Salesian Center for Faith & Culture, and the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales at DeSales University. Beginning in 2010, full operation of the Institute was transferred to the Salesian Center.

In 2012 the institute was re-named the Ryan Leadership Institute after its founders.
