The Soderquist Center
Equipping Leaders to go Further, Faster
The Soderquist Center is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1998 in affiliation with John Brown University's College of Business. Located in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, the Center serves as a global resource for equipping people in the corporate, non-profit, and academic world with the transforming power of ethical leadership. The Center is named for Don Soderquist, Executive in Residence and former COO and Senior Vice-Chairman of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.
The Center's energies are focused on equipping leaders through customizable training programs at the individual, team, or organizational level. Customers include corporations, not-for-profit organizations, and emerging leaders in graduate and undergraduate programs. The Center engages leaders through programs such as the Soderquist Leadership Summit for senior executives, the Milestone Leadership Intensive for middle managers, and strategic planning and culture building for entire organizations, and team building programs on our adventure learning courses.
The Center offers Soderquist Fellowships to top applicants of John Brown University's Master of Business Administration, Master of Science in Leadership and Ethics, and Master of Fine Arts programs. While working 35 hours per week at the Center, Soderquist Fellows receive full tuition and an hourly stipend for a two-year experience, completing graduate degrees, contributing to the Center's mission, and working alongside veteran business leaders.
