A good leader must be an excellent communicator. Students are introduced to successful and effective communication processes by faculty from the School of Leadership Studies.
Students receive life skills training in etiquette and communications, such as public speaking and creative writing.
Participants earn six college credits in courses such as COM 102: Society and Mass Media and COM 105: Speech or other related courses.
College Preparatory Courses
Students take college preparatory courses in mathematics and English, if needed. They are placed in the appropriate English and math levels based on their Accuplacer test scores. If the students' scores are higher than those required for college preparatory courses, they are exempt from taking the basic skills courses.
Community Service Hours
participants complete community service hours with a university organization for their formation as leaders. The program emphasizes the importance of sustainability as part of their leadership training for the 21st century.
