The ISULeads Leadership Certificate Program is a comprehensive leadership program offering students a structure for personalizing their college experience to develop as strong leaders and engaged citizens. ISULeads incorporates learning from campus (curricular* and cocurricular) and community experiences into three pillars: civic engagement, global perspectives, and leadership.
At its core ISULeads helps students select involvement opportunities that build on one another to make the most of their involvement and grow in their understanding, practice, and articulation of leadership. Based on the interest and time of students, they may participate in one or all pillars, but they must complete the Leadership Pillar at the same time or before the other two pillars. To earn the ISULeads Certificate a student must fulfill requirements of all three pillars; however, completion of each pillar is noted and recognized with a certificate and graduation cord.
(*While the program "counts" academic credit-based courses as program requirements, students do not receive academic credit for completing any portion of ISULeads.)
