At TIANS, we tend to "think globally and act locally". We tackle the biggest ideas and issues, and we seek out strategic partners around the globe. But our programs are focused locally, not only to provide service to the community we live in, but also to generate experiential learning on our part. Working close to home enhances our opportunities to gain valuable feedback and improve our programs.  

This spring, the Center will offer a local program on leadership development. Rev. Sharon Gracen will team up with her husband, Peter Schuller, to offer a six week course on Leadership for Millennials. The program, which will be offered to a select group of Millennials in Branford, CT, will deliver both traditional and novel approaches to leadership development. For more information, please contact Peter Schuller at, or visit the Programs page, in our Learning Center. (
