Partnerships

The Institute is engaged in “partnering” activities with a range of organizations. We have joined forces with various universities, business organizations, private foundations, professional associations, and institutes to generate programs of joint interest. We offer partnering possibilities that may include the services of only a handful of Taos representatives, up to the participation of the full Taos Institute team. 

 If you have a project for which partnering would be a promising possibility, please contact our institute president, Kenneth Gergen. Taos partners have included, for example, The David L. Cooperrider Center for Appreciative Inquiry, Champlain College, MacMann Berg, La Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez, Benedictine University, the University of New Hampshire, Louvain University, The Institute for Creative Change, The Houston-Galveston Institute for Family Therapy, Case Western Reserve University, Corporation for Positive Change, Ramboll/Attractor, Arbeidsinstituttet Drammen, and the GEM training program for NGO leaders at Case Western Reserve.

Relational Welfare Research Group

The Taos Institute is a collaborating partner with the Relational Welfare research group at the NTNU in Norway. The purpose of the research group is to help residents live good and dignified lives in strong communities, across generations and social backgrounds. Through innovation and research, citizens, local governments, academia, NGO’s, private sector and other relevant stakeholders will work together to develop new and more sustainable welfare solutions.
