About TCAL

About the Center for Accountable Leaders

Since its inception in 2008, the Center for Accountable Leaders has been honoring lives of integrity. We started as an independent not-for-profit organization and joined Kennesaw State University as a center of excellence in the Coles College of Business in 2010.


A Distinct, Authoritative Archive

The Center for Accountable Leaders is the only oral history archive devoted to business leaders who have moved from an active role in business to a second, often philanthropic career.

Our vision is to become recognized worldwide as the authoritative archive of successful, ethical leader video biographies. Our motivation is to provide current and future generations with first-hand examples of experiences that ultimately led to success in business, government, community, family, and self.
