Leadership for Personal and Social Impact, Certificate of Proficiency

Requirements

The Leadership for Personal and Social Impact certificate provides an academic setting where students gain theoretical and practical skills with principles of self-awareness and improvement that can immediately transform personal success and performance. As students learn and apply these principles and skills they will also be provided with and create their own engaging experiences to become more active contributors and stewards across a wide range of professional, volunteer, public, and private settings in their current and future local, regional, national, and international communities. Students from any academic major or minor are encouraged to enroll in and complete this certificate. Currently, two of the courses are offered online, (SLSS 1000 and SLSS 1200) so it is possible that students may choose to take those courses online. Initially, it is anticipated that the other courses will be offered on the main campus. As interest and demand increases, the Department of Student Leadership and Success Studies will reevaluate and may offer the remaining courses online.
