Our co-curricular leadership certificate program gives any student a structure to actively explore and talk about leadership while continuing to develop skills and abilities as a leader in and out of the classroom and in the broader community. You can earn your certificate in approximately 7 weeks at 1 to 1.5 hours per week. Feeling ambitious? You can earn all three certificates in one year.
